Texas Tech University

Mission & Vision

New Look

After consideration of program initiatives we changed our name to suit our mission and vision to College Connect. We were formally known as (The Office of K-12 & IDEAL).


Our mission is to inspire conversations about the value of higher education and foster a college-achieving culture through academic excellence in outreach programs, partnerships, and opportunities that serve both participating students and communities.


College Connect strives to be an inclusive environment in which students, local community professional educators, and Texas Tech faculty collaboratively share ideas to cultivate a culture of excellence by engaging each stakeholder in programs, activities, and events that contribute to the encouragement of higher education attainment.
