"Texas Tech is a great public research university where students succeed, knowledge is advanced and global engagement is championed" (TTU's vision, 2010)
CALUE assists the Study Abroad Office and colleges with promoting study abroad opportunities to students interested in participating in programs abroad that offer international learning opportunities while making progress toward their TTU degree. Graduates who have studied abroad become future leaders - in public, private and non-profit sectors - with a more nuanced understanding of other countries and cultures as well as greater self-awareness and self-confidence.
We aim to ensure that our students' study abroad experiences help them affect positive change in the world, both locally and globally. Students who study abroad learn independence, self-confidence, flexibility, clarity about their own culture and their future goals, understanding views and perspectives held by others, and language and communication skills.
