Task Force

In fall of 2014, department chairs and associate deans nominated individuals to be considered for appointment to the Provost's Task Force on Student Success and Retention. Following the Deans' review of all nominations, 30 individuals were appointed to this important advisory group. In the selection process, the aim was to build a diverse group whose members would offer their unique departmental, college, and/or administrative perspectives. Each of these will be essential to our efforts. The task force will work to ensure that students reach even higher levels of excellence and success while at Texas Tech.

Task Force Working Groups

These working groups were created to provide each member with at least two focused areas for meaningful contribution. Additional groups will be established as needed.
