What makes your college a great place to work?

Employee Comment

The people and culture. Texas Tech is unlike any other institution I have previously worked. The people here are kind, genuine, and considerate. The culture is very "down to earth" and the leadership make every effort within their abilities to make the institution a great place to work.

President's Statement

Family and community are core characteristics of Texas Tech University. These are traits that have contributed to a sense of belonging within our community and support of programs by faculty and staff that enhance student success and provide exceptional learning experiences. This has resulted in record retention and graduation rates and helped to foster an environment that promotes the personal and professional characteristics of our graduates.
