The College of Human Sciences supports faculty, staff, and students in their community
In the College of Human Sciences at Texas Tech University, we are responsible for
reaching out to local, state, national, and international communities to contribute
to the public wellbeing. By reaching out, faculty, staff, and students are able to
extend and apply their disciplinary knowledge and expertise beyond the campus walls
to help support and advance education, health care, the arts, civic life, public policy,
economic development, and much more.
We advocate for your engaged scholarship activities on campus, in our communities,
and across the globe
To engage means connecting the needs and interests of Texas Tech faculty, staff, and
students with the needs and interests of communities. By engaging with communities,
faculty gain valuable experiences and insights that can inform their teaching, research/creative
activity, and service. Students are able to apply their classroom learning to real-world
issues, which enhances their overall learning experience and career opportunities.
Engaged scholarship describes efforts to connect knowledge generated through faculty
research activites that directly impact the public in ways that collaboratively address
social issues and community needs.
