Texas Tech University is committed to internationalizing itself in every aspect. In no area is it more evident than through the efforts of the Office of International Affairs, which oversees international students arriving and studying at Texas Tech to domestic students wishing to broaden their educational horizons abroad to facilitating international research opportunities for faculty members. The Office of International Affairs strives to create a welcoming and appreciative environment for all backgrounds and cultures.
"We try to be a one-stop shop. Say 'international' at Texas Tech, it's the Office of International Affairs," said Tibor Nagy, vice provost for International Affairs. "For someone to succeed coming out of a university, they have to be globally competent and globally competitive. Texas Tech does a phenomenal job of that – preparing a student."
