Texas Tech University


This year for Asian, Pacific Islander, Desi & Arab (APIDA) Heritage Month, we honor and celebrate the constellation of cultures, stories, dreams, and achievements of our APIDA Red Raiders. We in Raiderland recognize our APIDA leaders who shine and illuminate our campus and world beyond through their unique gifts and powerful voices. Through this stellar celebration and its events, Texas Tech uplifts and amplifies the voices and cultures of our APIDA students, faculty, and staff who, with generations of tradition and by hopeful ambitions, go boldly forward every single day.
