Texas Tech has a goal of a student enrollment of 40,000 by 2020. Programs that provide retention and academic support for students are an integral part of reaching that goal.
Since 2002, minority and first-generation TTU and students have been matched with caring faculty, staff members, and graduate students from TTU and TTUHSC through Mentor Tech. The program strives to assist in the university’s retention efforts.
