Dear students, faculty and staff,
Good Wednesday morning.
We only have a couple more days in the Fall Quarter. Keep focusing on your final exams and projects, and I know you’ll do well.
I’m happy to announce we’ve got another opportunity for free COVID-19 testing available on our campus. Students, faculty, and staff will be able to take advantage of free antigen testing at Green Clinic’s TechCare location at the Lambright Wellness Center. With this test, results will be available in 30 minutes.
You should schedule your free test through TechCare’s online scheduling system at: https://gctechcare.simplybook.me/v2/#book.
The clinic is open from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and closed for lunch from 12:30 to 1 p.m. Walk-ins are accepted until 3:45 p.m.
Don’t forget our Louisiana Army National Guard testing site continues its operations from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday at the Argent Alumni Pavilion. The link to register for this free testing is http://health.questdiagnostics.com/STLOU.
Tech Donor Disaster Relief Scholarships
Many of our Tech Family members – students, faculty, staff, and alumni – have connections to students who have been impacted by Hurricane Laura. So many alumni have asked how they can best make a difference for Tech students and their families who are still recovering.
Some of those alumni and friends of Louisiana Tech have demonstrated how much they care by organizing clean-up efforts, contributing to drives for food and materials, and by giving to the Louisiana Tech Student Relief Fund. This fund was originally established in the aftermath of the April 2019 tornado and stands ready to provide help for those who need it most.
At this time, the University has 30 scholarships for $500 available to award.
If you are a student whose family has been impacted by Hurricane Laura and you need financial assistance, please complete the Tech Donor Disaster Relief Scholarship application online at latech.academicworks.com.
If you have not already completed a general scholarship application in Academic Works, you will need to do so before completing the Tech Donor Disaster Relief Scholarship. The application will be open Nov. 18-22. Students will be notified by email from the Office of Financial Aid if they have received an award once all applications have been reviewed.
Louisiana Tech is one of 19 national universities that has been selected to participate in a three-year institutional change initiative known as IChange as part of Aspire: The National Alliance for Inclusive & Diverse STEM Faculty.
In addition to furthering our efforts toward inclusive excellence in our faculty recruitment, success, and retention, IChange is aimed at ensuring faculty use inclusive practices in teaching, advising, and research mentoring.
Dr. Katie Evans, Associate Dean of Strategic Initiatives in the College of Engineering and Science, has been asked to lead this campus-wide effort. Provost Dr. Terry McConathy and Dr. Evans are working to identify members of a campus team to steer the effort, as well as establishing a plan of communication to engage all parts of campus. Louisiana Tech’s involvement is set to begin this Winter Quarter.
Finally, congratulations to all the graduates we’ll celebrate this weekend! Remember your good health and safety practices as we wind down the quarter, and good luck on your finals.
