The Office of Intercultural Education & Engagement (IEE) was established as an office in 2021 after the three-year growth of cultural and heritage events and celebrations. The establishment of the Office of Intercultural Education & Engagement speaks to the breadth of the body of work to support student, faculty, and staff by advancing inclusion and intercultural development on campus.

The Office of Intercultural Education & Engagement serves the Texas Tech community as a space to support the education, empowerment, development and engagement of intercultural and intersectional identities and experiences. The IEE strengthens the campus community through the facilitation and leadership of co-curricular programming, community building, dialogue series, heritage and cultural events, advocacy, and innovative engagement. As part of a student-centric framework, the leadership development and advocacy efforts of the Student Intersectional Leadership Council (SILC) are involved in planning events. The IEE also serves as a resource for members of the TTU and local community in their practice of inclusivity, equity, and allyship.
