Mission and Vision Statements

Mission Statement

The National Wind Institute's (NWI) mission is to serve as Texas Tech University's (TTU) intellectual hub for interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary education, research, and commercialization related to wind science, wind energy, wind engineering and wind hazard mitigation.  The Institute will support Texas Tech faculty and students, and external partners involved in these activities and other peripheral areas of interest.

The program is to provide students with the broad education necessary to pursue research and solve problems related to the detrimental effects of windstorms and to learn to take advantage of the beneficial effects of wind.

Vision Statement

The vision of NWI is to educate the next generation of wind workforce and researchers; stimulate discovery and innovation; provide and implement solutions to wind-related problems and establish multi-dimensional relationships within the wind field.
