The new center will be named the ConocoPhillips Center for Engineering Enrichment and Diversity for a period of five years in recognition of the company’s contribution.

Located in the Engineering Center building, the ConocoPhillips Center for Engineering Enrichment and Diversity will enhance recruiting efforts among historically underrepresented groups and serve as a central location for student academic support services within the Whitacre College of Engineering. The center will also unite existing programs to better serve current and prospective engineering students at Texas Tech in support of the college’s goal to increase student diversity over the next five years.

The center will house the ConocoPhillips Bridge Program, which provides academic skills training, tutoring, peer mentoring and other academic support services for incoming freshmen engineering students, as well as the ConocoPhillips Diversity Lecture Series, which provides semiannual lectures on diversity and inclusivity in the workplace.

“We are truly grateful for the continued generosity of ConocoPhillips,” said Chancellor Kent Hance. “They have been great corporate partners over the years, and this $1 million gift will further Texas Tech’s commitment to providing the top services and resources for our engineering students to succeed.”

The center will also support a number of existing student diversity programs within the Whitacre College of Engineering, including the Figuerora Family Enrichment Program, the Joella Childress Carlyon Phoenix Program and the college’s tutoring programs. It also will support and coordinate activities for the college’s alliance of student diversity organizations, providing guest lectures, internship opportunities and other activities for student members.
