Texas Tech University Response to Racial Social Media Post

Administration Bell Tower

"We are aware of racially insensitive comments shared on social media earlier today and are taking steps to address the matter. Texas Tech University does not condone the abhorrent speech and views expressed in the video. As an institution of higher learning, we are strongly committed to diversity and inclusion. We foster and promote the freedom of expression, but condemn the use of hateful and derogatory language. As American citizens, we value our protections under the First Amendment, even when we do not support the content of a message."

A new era of excellence is dawning as Texas Tech University achieves the Tier One designation. As of 2016, Texas Tech is listed among the nation's top doctoral universities in the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education. Of the 115 universities listed in the Highest Research Activity category, Texas Tech is one of 81 public institutions in the top tier.

Research and enrollment numbers are at record levels, which cement Texas Tech's commitment to attracting and retaining quality students. The university strives to foster an environment that celebrates student accomplishment above all else. Texas Tech is large enough to provide the best in facilities and academics, but small enough to focus on each student individually.

Quality students need a top-notch faculty. Texas Tech is home to a diverse, highly revered pool of educators who excel in teaching, research and service.

The momentum for excellence at Texas Tech has never been greater.
