IGNITE!.Texas Tech's Program for LGBTQIA Allyship

IGNITE! is our educational program that seeks to educate people both in and out of the LGBTQIA community on inclusive practices for all identities. We do outreach and education for students, faculty, and staff here at Texas Tech and beyond! As part of these educational sessions, we encourage you to be open-minded and willing to learn from others! Sometimes the best way to learn is by learning from another human's experience.

We offer classroom/staff trainings, edu-socials, and our presence at tabling events for anyone who is interested!

Asynchronous Sessions
