About Us

Texas Tech University strives to maximize educational opportunities for its students and the communities it serves.  As part of this mission, the Office of International Affairs (OIA) works to expand the global footprint of the University by integrating international education, scholarship, and engagement with global issues, and by strengthening intercultural understanding for students, faculty, staff, and the broader community.

Housed within the beautifully designed International Cultural Center (ICC), the OIA consists of the following divisions: International Enrollment Development and Operations, International Research and Development,  International Student and Scholar Services, International Relations, and Study Abroad.


Built in 1996, the International Cultural Center (ICC) is a significant service center and is Texas Tech University’s signature statement of its commitment to international education. Through the divisions of the OIA, it provides a continual series of conferences, lectures, art exhibitions, and performances as well as services to faculty, staff, students, and the local community. More than 35,000 people are served through the center each year.

The Award of Merit from the American Institute of Architects was awarded to the architects for the ICC design.When visiting the ICC, you will notice the 12 foot stainless steel globe just west of the building.  Inside, the building is equally beautiful. The Hall of Nations is a rotunda and features flags of nations of the world and a terrazzo floor representing the continents, oceans and seas of the world. A color mural, The Peoples of the World , and sepia murals of education and the arid lands mission of the University can be seen in the halls and gallery outside the Hall of Nations. Our World Room is featured in the center of the building and exhibits a six-foot geo-physical circulating globe by Rand McNally.

Photographic and art exhibits can be viewed in both the east and west galleries and on the walls encircling the globe in the Our World Room.

Texas Tech Athletes bring the world to our campus and take the Double T across the globe. Athletics boasts 41 international student athletes who hail from 26 countries. In addition to bringing these talented student-athletes to Lubbock, these young men and women have the opportunity to compete globally in a variety of sports. On and off the field or court, in season and out of season, our student-athletes rank as most valuable players in the internationalization of Texas Tech University.
