The Texas Tech University STEM-CORE Network connects faculty and staff from across campus in an effort to support the sustainment and development of successful STEM initiatives. Formally, the Network is an email distribution list that allows the STEM-CORE to keep members apprised of opportunities. Informally, the Network forms a community of STEM advocates and potential collaborators at Texas Tech University.
Join the Network
The STEM-CORE Network is open to any interested TTU graduate students, staff, and faculty members. Unfortunately, due to technical restrictions, we are currently unable to include e-mail addresses that do not end in "@ttu.edu"
