Your health and safety is the foundation of our Texas Tech Commitment.
The health, safety, and well-being of the Texas Tech community have been the focus since the COVID-19 pandemic reshaped our lives this spring. As Texas Tech begins to focus on reopening our campus, we are doing so with your health and safety in mind. We pledge to you our Texas Tech Commitment and that means we will do everything that we can to provide a safe learning and working environment for students, faculty, and staff. When you arrive on campus this summer and fall, you will find enhanced sanitization efforts, resources for health screenings, access to personal protective equipment, workplace and classroom wellness guidance, and social distancing protocols. Reducing the impact of COVID-19 will take a combined effort from each of us and we know you will be ready to do your part to stop the spread.
