To the Texas Tech family,
In 2011, Provost Bob Smith and I established an Undergraduate Research Task Force to examine the state of undergraduate research at Texas Tech and make recommendations on how the university can become a premier institution for undergraduate research. I have received the report and recommendations of the task force and am asking Provost Smith to implement the appropriate recommendations.
Undergraduate research has long been a staple of Texas Tech, and it is a key element of active learning on our campus along with study abroad opportunities, service learning and internships.
The task force did a commendable job of examining undergraduate research opportunities as they currently exist on the campus and gathering information on how we can improve those opportunities for both faculty and students.
I am excited that undergraduate research is a becoming a signature program at Texas Tech.
