About the Program

The McLane Teammates Reading Program is a one semester, non-credit reading group where participants read and discuss selections from classic works and from contemporary scholars that address important questions in political economy. Participants that successfully complete the program receive a $1,000 scholarship.

The McLane Teammates Reading Program at Texas Tech University complements similar programs, which are operating concurrently at the O'Neil Center for Global Markets and Freedom at Southern Methodist University, and the Baugh Center for Entrepreneurship & Free Enterprise at Baylor University.

All three groups examine the same set of readings and interact with one another at a joint meeting once during the semester, hosted at Southern Methodist University. 

Participants meet weekly for Socratic-style discussions facilitated by a Texas Tech University faculty member, whose role is to pose questions and encourage participation from each member of the group.

All undergraduate students, who have a full time enrollment status at Texas Tech University, are eligible and encouraged to apply.
