The department’s faculty will be available to share their expertise with groups across our community, including civic organizations such as Rotary and Lions clubs, church groups, and senior citizens groups. Youth sports programs and parent organizations would benefit from this information as well. The goal is to provide expert information that will help transform lives, while fostering outreach and partnerships between Texas Tech and the community.
