You Can Make A Difference

The Lauro Cavazos & Ophelia Powell-Malone Mentoring Program (Mentor Tech) continues to extend an invitation to all faculty, staff members and graduate students from Texas Tech University and Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center to become a mentor for the upcoming academic year. You still have time to help us make a difference in the lives of our students. At this time the number of incoming new students enrolling into the program is increasing daily. Our objective is to ensure that each student participant knows that he or she has someone that they can go to for encouragement, direction, and support, as they endeavor to navigate the university setting. We work to increase the graduation and retention rates of students.

To become a mentor prior mentoring experience is not needed. The program is open to all regardless of academic, professional, or ethnic background. All you need is a willingness to help students succeed. If you are interested in learning more, make plans to attend one of the Mentor Information Sessions listed below. Please RSVP by replying to or calling 806-742-8692.

Remember, the recruitment and retention of students is everyone’s responsibility. We look forward to your assistance in this effort.
