Texas Tech University

John Michael Getz

Graduate Vice President
I am in my second and final year of graduate school studying tax accounting and preparing to sit for the CPA exam. I completed BBA's in finance and accounting at Texas Tech from 2013-2017. SGA has been an important part of my college career; from a freshman member, to senator-at-large, and vice-president for graduate affairs, I have been fortunate to be a part of a group of students who are dedicated to representing Red Raiders. My goal is to have students represented in every facet of Texas Tech. If you're interested in bringing a student voice to this campus, or if there are any ideas you have, I encourage you to have your voice heard by talking to or joining SGA.

Representing Graduate Interests | TTU SGA


May 2, 2018

Fellow graduate students,

Texas Tech University's Student Government Association (SGA) is uniquely positioned to represent the specific and ever-changing interests of graduate students. SGA's Student Senate and Vice President for Graduate Affairs work closely with university administrators, local officials, and state and federal elected representatives on issues such as student health insurance, tax-free textbooks, tuition and fee rates, research funding, and DACA.

During the upcoming year, SGA will specifically work on chairing student fee committees, advocating for Texas Tech students during the upcoming Texas Legislative Session, and also working on a number of student success initiatives. Please, do not hesitate to reach out to SGA with any concerns you may have at the moment or in the future.

If you are interested in representing graduate students as a Senator for the Graduate School, please send a resume, headshot, and statement of intent to myself and Senator Tristan Torres before the end of the day on Friday, May 4th.
