The seven students in the Land Arts of the American West class began thinking about the course’s finale from the first day of their two-month outdoor classroom. And some say the experience will continue to imbue their work in the future.

“I know there are things that will seep in later as I’m just sitting in my studio and working and ideas flowing in,” artist, Kellie Flint, says. “I’ll be like, that’s Land Arts.”

Start a long road trip without a clear map route and travel to your destination could prove problematic. That’s the rationale behind Texas Tech’s new strategic plan which is intended to guide the university to its 100th birthday in 2025.

The plan, entitled ‘A Foundation for the Next Century: A Pathway to 2025,’ lays out three priorities, assigns goals within each of those and lays out strategies aimed at achieving each of the goals.

Texas Tech nutritional sciences professor Nik Dhurandhar wasn’t looking for a virus that causes obesity. He wanted to learn IF one did. And he succeeded. The AD36 virus and Dhurandhar’s startling research since 1995 will be spotlighted by National Geographic this fall.

Studies by research groups across every continent except Africa have brought similar findings since he confirmed that infectobesity, obesity through infection, is real.

It’s been a deluge since last fall when reports surfaced about Harvey Weinstein’s history of alleged sexual harassment and assault. Many well-known names followed. The ripple effect from these stories – the #MeToo movement - is likely to shift how other businesses and industries handle making workplaces safe from sexual harassment.

“I think it has had an impact,” Carol Lindquist, assistant professor of practice at Texas Tech says. “People are thinking about the question, the issues. Long-term it’s hard to say. It probably will have some of an impact.”

When Nathaniel Wright began looking for speakers for the university’s African American History Month Lecture Series, he aimed high. But he thought that perhaps Texas Tech’s location in a staunchly conservative city might not play well with his first invitee. He was shocked when Anita Hill readily accepted.
