Hello! I'm Dr. Marc Lochbaum, and I'm a Professor of Sport Psychology at Texas Tech University. I'm partnering with TrUE to host a number of undergraduate research opportunities through my lab, and I'm recruiting students to join our work. Please take a few minutes to explore what the lab has put together so far and contact me if you would like to discuss collaborating.

Project Description

For much longer than anticipated, the COVID-19 global pandemic taught me to buckle up for the next portion of my academic career. The good news, even in our pandemic world, we are surrounded by archival data for meta-analyses and invaluable cross-sectional (and in my case cross continental) research activities. Archival data as well as questionnaire development are in every field of study, in every possible life domain, and in every possible culture. The limits are unlimited and thus our TTU “From here, it is possible” motto makes sense.

Our strategic plan is as follows: “Texas Tech University's Strategic Plan, A Foundation for the Next Century | A Pathway to 2025, focuses on three primary, comprehensive areas of focus as the university nears completion of its first century of service. This plan will provide a framework for the university moving forward and support our efforts to solidify Texas Tech's position as a premier public research university.”

  • Educate and empower a diverse student body
  • Enable innovative research and creative activities
  • Transform lives and communities through strategic outreach and engaged scholarship
  • My SPARK undergraduate research program follows our strategic plan in full.
