Since May 2019, 2003 graduate Adam McGuirt has served Louisiana Tech as Director of Disaster Recovery and Strategic Initiatives. The position was created after the April 25, 2019, EF3 tornado plowed through campus and has grown to include responsibility for the campus response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since her appointment, Devonia Love-Vaughn has spent much of her time consulting and collaborating with several students, faculty, and staff about upcoming projects, including formation of the Inclusive Excellence Advisory Council.
Construction is ongoing at almost every corner as Louisiana Tech continues to build its 21st Century Campus. If something’s not being built from scratch, it’s being refreshed, refurbished, repurposed, or repaired.

Louisiana Tech has added several new undergraduate certificates designed to increase job opportunities for current students, prospective students, and non-traditional students.
The pandemic that began impacting college sports in mid-March 2020 largely disrupted or shut down college competition for months, but in the classroom, Louisiana Tech’s student-athletes found success across the board as 13 of Tech’s 16 Division I sanctioned programs recorded a Graduation Success Rate of at least 75 percent.
