Mentor Tech


The Lauro Cavazos & Ophelia Powell-Malone Mentoring Program (Mentor Tech) was introduced during the fall semester of the 2002. Named for Dr. Lauro F. Cavazos, the first undergraduate to serve as President of Texas Tech University and Ophelia Powell-Malone, the first African American undergraduate of Texas Tech University, the program seeks to enhance the quality of the educational experiences of students from underrepresented groups through programs, services, advocacy, and campus and community involvement. For additional information, contact the office or review the program's fact sheet.
