Texas Tech University IDEAL's mission is to provide distinctive and unique outreach programs that promote academic excellence and diversity. All programs are designed to give students a successful academic experience on a university campus.
The Institute for the Development and Enrichment of Advanced Learners (IDEAL) at Texas Tech University was established in 1984 to open the eyes of thousands of students to the endless adventures in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. We offer programs for students from K-12th grade. IDEAL helps to encourage students to pursue a post-secondary education and help increase their knowledge with regards to requirements for entering a two- or four-year institution of higher learning. Our mission is to provide distinctive and unique outreach programs that promote academic excellence and diversity. The most important work is introducing underrepresented students to a collegiate experience and dispelling myths and fears about higher education. Programs are often designed to address a particular need but all programs are designed to give students a successful academic experience on a university campus.
