A sizable corporation has made a hefty donation to Texas Tech.

ConocoPhillips and Texas Tech announced the $1 million gift from ConocoPhillips to establish a student recruitment and support center in the Whitacre College of Engineering.

The ConocoPhillips Center for Engineering Enrichment and Diversity will be located in the Engineering Center Building, and will enhance recruiting efforts among historically underrepresented groups. Tech says the center will serve as a central location for student academic support services for engineering students.

The center will house the ConocoPhillips Bridge Program and will also support the ConocoPhillips Diversity Lecture Series, which will provide semiannual lectures on diversity and inclusivity in the workplace.

“Our industry’s future success depends on a highly talented, innovative, diverse, and technical workforce,” said Tom Mathiasmeier, ConocoPhillips president, North America Gas & Power, and Texas Tech alumnus. “Diversity and inclusion is a priority for us at ConocoPhillips and we’re proud to be able to extend this important initiative to the engineering students at Texas Tech.”

The center will expand the college’s recruiting efforts in diverse Texas school districts.
