PASSION for success, INTEGRITY among peers, CONNECTION in community, and DESIRE to SHARE 

Texas Tech University and TECH PARENTS programs

Ambassadors are supportive family and friends who build relationshipsintegrate into the TTU community, and volunteer in ways that make the TTU experience a positive one for all families.  

"Parent Ambassadors build meaningful relationships resulting in
a positive university experience for the entire family," Joyce Zachman, CEO.

The Parent Ambassador is now the basis of volunteering with Texas Tech Parents Association. No matter how experienced the volunteer, each needs training and support. Even if the volunteer is already well versed in how to do a particular job, learning the ropes of Texas Tech Parents Association, getting to know our mission, vision, and plans, and educating you about the work that you do is something each volunteer wants and needs.

Why engage

Research has shown that parental involvement is one of the best predictors for post-secondary educational aspirations and students give credit to their parents as supporters for college aspiration and success.
