Welcome to Texas Tech UIL
History of Texas Tech UIL
The earliest documentation identifying Texas Technological College as a host of a University Interscholastic League (UIL) event was March 1938 in the 'Texas Tech Magazine: Engineering Edition'. Texas Tech University has since expanded its support of Texas public high school education by creating its own specialized unit (TTU-UIL) charged with administering a wide variety of UIL regional and invitational competitions, workshops and summer camps. These events and competitions assure that many of the region's top academic and athletic high school students visit Lubbock and the Texas Tech Campus in a bid to gain a birth to the state tournaments. It is a goal that many of these students participating in UIL activities will select Texas Tech as their University of choice.
The Texas Tech UIL department supports advancing the awareness of and increasing the enrollment of the University by hosting regional academic and athletic competitions which enable many of the top high school students from across the state the opportunity to visit the Texas Tech campus. UIL is dedicated to providing high school students with unbiased competitions; quality venues; and promoting partnerships and collaborations with local and regional educators and business establishments.
