About the Parent Association
The Tennessee Tech University Parent Association (TTUPA) is an organization committed to the success of Tech students. The association was created out of a need for a direct line of communication between the University and the parents/guardians of its students. University officials feel strongly that this positive relationship between the University and families will strengthen the student as he or she moves toward graduation.
