Health and Wellness
The health of our employees is important to us. Texas Tech has many benefits and programs in place to help our employees stay in good health, both physically and mentally. As a state institution, Texas Tech offers comprehensive insurance benefits and retirement plans. Choose from a variety of insurance options to best fit your individual circumstances.
Faculty and staff can become members of the Recreational Center for a small monthly fee. The Rec Center serves the fitness needs of our employees and their families through several fitness and wellness programs and classes, aquatics, Outdoor Pursuits and other special events such as the Faculty and Staff Fitness Challenge.
Additionally, Texas Tech sponsors F.I.T. Tech to improve the well-being, nutrition and fitness of our employees. This free program was awarded a gold medal for behavior change from the 2009 State Agency Worksite Wellness Promising Practices Recognition Program.
Finally, Texas Tech employees have access to the Employee Assistance Program (EAP). Employees who are experiencing personal problems are encouraged to seek the private and confidential services of the EAP.
