Texas Tech University

March 16, 2020

Greetings to our Red Raider family,

On Thursday, March 12th the TTU Office of the President shared a proactive measure designed to limit the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) on the Texas Tech University Campus. The health and safety of our students, faculty, & staff remains our top priority. The Division of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion is committed to ensuring that all of our students and mentors are able to navigate this transition as smoothly as possible. We understand that these proactive measures can impact emotional, mental & physical well-being, please know that we are here to support you. We are committed to ensuring that our program participants and larger campus community continue to have the necessary tools and resources to continue thriving at TTU. We are working diligently with our campus and Lubbock community partners to best provide information and distribute to you all. Please expect to receive information via email, the DDEI website and interactions with our staff regarding:

  • Most updated information available on programs, services and resources
  • Connecting you to internal and external university resources that may be of service to you
  • Modifying program structures so that you are still able to engage in programs with minimal impact to your success

To participants within division programs, we are assessing programmatic experiences and developing a plan for modified engagement that still creates a community of support for you all. Until further notice, you are not expected to be physically present at activities and will be provided alternative methods for meeting your particular programs expectations. Our team is still available to meet in person or virtually while our offices remain open during regular university hours, Monday through Friday, 8am-5pm.

Please continue to reach out to us and we can work with you through any needs that you may have and getting you connected with proper resources.
