Diversity Week is a week dedicated to celebrating and understanding the importance of diversity throughout the community and Texas Tech University. Events, both fun and educational, will be planned throughout the entire week. This year will obviously look a little different as we continue to follow all safety guidelines by remaining mostly virtual with events. This year Diversity Week will be held the week of March 22nd.
