Texas Tech University

Graduate Laboratory and Studio Safety Ambassador Logo



GLASS Ambassadors is a focus group of graduate students and Environmental Health & Safety (EHS) personnel focused on fostering transparency, communication and safety awareness in the management of chemical, biological and physical hazards that may be present in research laboratories, studios and educational activities of Texas Tech University. 


GLASS Ambassadors creates a unique opportunity for students to voice their concerns, as well as, provide insight to existing faculty safety committees charged with guiding current and future safety policy at Texas Tech University. By partnering with the Department of Environmental Health & Safety, these students will become leaders in promoting the culture of safety in their colleges and throughout campus.
