The Texas Tech Commitment is our pledge to create a safe campus environment for students, faculty, and staff as we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.

At Texas Tech University, our top priority is the health, safety, and well-being of our students, faculty, and staff. With your safety in mind, we are unveiling our Texas Tech Commitment – a comprehensive plan that includes new procedures designed to help protect you and those you love. There will be enhanced sanitization efforts, resources for health screenings, access to personal protective equipment, workplace and classroom wellness guidance, and social distancing protocols. With the addition of these new procedures, along with attention to personal hygiene, proper social distancing, and self-care, we can all do our part to protect our campus community.
