Plains Bridges to The Baccalaureate Program
The Plains Bridges to the Baccalaureate (PBB) Program is a partnership between South Plains College (SPC) and Texas Tech University (TTU) funded by the National Institutes of Health. PBB is a multi-faceted program for students from underrepresented groups interested in science and who plan to start their college career at South Plains College. The program aims to help these students succeed in higher education and to help them make a smooth, successful transition to a four-year institution, such as Texas Tech University.
The PPB Program provides activities and services to help SPC students succeed in college, transfer to a four-year university, and continue their education in the biological/biomedical sciences. Examples of activities include workshops focused on time management, study strategies and careers in science, undergraduate research, and travel to a national scientific conference.
