The goal of the Institute for the Development and Enrichment of Advanced Learners (IDEAL) is to provide curriculum based programming distinctly designed to challenge and engage students in fields such as science, technology, engineering, art and math. In support of this goal IDEAL offers a variety of academic year and summer programming which introduces K-12th grade students to new fields of study and provides a hands on learning environment to encourage academic success.

IDEAL offers Texas Tech University students, faculty and staff the opportunity to engage as instructors, counselors, researchers and analysts and to develop new and sustainable programming to continue to expand the scope of the University's academic engagement and involvement.
