The College of Liberal Arts is committed to the University’s dedication to quality in teaching, in research and creative activity, and in public service: First and foremost, the College of Liberal Arts seeks to support the mission of Louisiana Tech University in maintaining “a faculty committed to teaching and advising, a student-oriented faculty dedicated to preparing students to achieve their goals in a rapidly changing economic and civic environment… a faculty that will through both theoretical and applied research and creative activities, contribute to the development of new knowledge, new art, and new technology.”
The challenges caused by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) are having a profound impact around the globe, including here at Louisiana Tech University. In these extraordinary times, there are faculty, staff, and students in each program of the College who have worked diligently to make a positive difference on campus and in our community. The quarter may be coming to a close, but for the students of our Tech family, their academic and professional lives are just beginning. These students arrive with excitement and enthusiasm for what lies ahead, but every year we are faced with the challenge of providing the necessary resources to fuel the pursuit of their goals and make a positive impact. This is especially true in regard to the complexity and overwhelming amount of information on COVID-19 which has left many unsure about the future. One thing remains constant for our students, the support of the Louisiana Tech family. Maddie Prattini, a music performance student within the College of Liberal Arts, explains that her last few months as a student have definitely been unusual, but the support I have received from my Tech Family has allowed her to continue strong in my classes.
The College of Liberal Arts encourages creativity and innovation in its students. This is shown both within and outside of the classroom by both the administration and faculty.
We are counting on your support to overcome obstacles and provide the opportunities our students need to lead rewarding careers and lives. Your contribution sustains our legacy of offering quality, comprehensive liberal arts education by helping us continually advance our curricula, resources, and facilities. When our students succeed, the whole Tech community shares in that achievement. Giving today will help bridge the gap between what is and what can be at Louisiana Tech.
With the Tech family behind them and a promise of a whole person education in front of them, there is no limit to what our students can achieve as we embrace a new year full of possibilities.
