School Information
Texas Tech University prides itself on being a major comprehensive research university that retains the sense of a smaller liberal arts institution. Although enrollment is over 30,000, Texas Tech students boast of one-on-one interaction with top faculty and an environment that stresses student accomplishment above all else. We're large enough to provide the best in facilities and academics, but small enough to focus on you. We are committed tor enhancing the cultural and economic development of the state, nation, and world. Interested in working at Texas Tech? Visit www.workattexastech.com!
General Information
In June 2020, the Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion announced the following new initiatives: • All new first-year and transfer students will be required to complete a new online training course, Voices for Change, that addresses diversity, identity, bias, and inclusion. • The required student organization leaders training will include a diversity, equity, and inclusion component. • The Campus Inclusion Resource Team (CIRT) is active and engaged. The online reporting mechanism is active and is updated as incident reports are received. • Our admissions team has continued to recruit and enroll more Black/African-American students and students from other underrepresented and minoritized communities. As a result, we have seen a double-digit increase in the number of Black/African-American confirmed students as well as increases in our Hispanic, Asian, and American Indian student groups.
