Texas Tech IEP Advising Philosophy
The IEP Program Managers' primary role is to support students throughout their international experience from pre-departure to return. We believe that international experiences are an integral part of the greater Texas Tech learning experience and prepare students for the global workforce. The IEP fosters an environment in which students can be independent and take ownership of their experiences abroad. Our students should be their own agents and advocates when it comes to any questions or difficulties that may arise throughout this process and communicate these directly to the appropriate IEP Program Manager.
Students can expect us to:
- Embrace, respect, and support diversity. The IEP team recognizes that students come to Texas Tech with diverse backgrounds that may impact their experience as a student going abroad
- Encourage students to define goals for their international experience (academic, personal, and professional) and provide resources to help students identify a program that best meets these goals.
- Be knowledgeable in the programs we offer abroad in order to assist students during pre-departure, on-site, and return processes.
- Encourage students to discuss their international experience plans with their academic advisor.
- Openly discuss any questions related to the international experience.
- Protect student privacy and information by complying with the Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) regulations.
We expect students to:
- Take ownership of their international experience from pre-departure to return.
- Research programs on the TTU IEP website, define goals and discuss questions with the Engineering Diplomats, IEP staff, and past participants.
- Read all communication from the IEP staff and our partners; this includes all emails and materials provided. Meet all tasks and deadlines given by the TTU Study Abroad Office, the IEP staff, and our partners. Understand and complete all components of the TTU application and ask for clarification when needed.
- Inform parents, guardians, or mentors of decisions and regularly share information about the international experience with them. Encourage parents, guardians, and mentors to ask questions about programs directly to the students.
- Upon return to the United States, leverage their international experience by applying the knowledge and skills learned throughout their experience abroad
