Welcome to Lamar Institute of Technology
Welcome to Lamar Institute of Technology (LIT). We are focused on student success. In fact, this is our No. 1 priority. We believe that setting high goals and learning should be an active partnership between students, faculty, and staff. In everything we do and in everything that we say, we are ‘reimagining’ how to create a direct pathway to the American Dream for our over 8,000 students.
Our Shared Vision: But Your Success
- Our faculty help each student find a clear purpose early in their LIT journey.
- We connect students to mentors, peers with similar interests, faculty, advisors, and other resources that will help them along the way.
- At LIT, we outline a clear specific plan for each student to reach their individual goals. Then everyone supports them along the way, and help them stay on their chosen path.
- Students become engaged students in their education—in and out of the classroom.
