The Texas International Cotton School is uniquely structured to provide an integrated understanding of the Texas cotton industry and how it interacts with the global cotton/textile complex. The intensive two-week program covers all aspects of cotton, from field to the fabric. Since its inception, the school has been a collaboration between the Texas cotton merchants who make up the Lubbock Cotton Exchange and the faculty and staff of the Fiber and Biopolymer Research Institute of Texas Tech University.
During the two weeks of the school, more than 30 experts from across the United States teach the students, who learn about the cotton marketing chain - including seed breeding, farm production, harvesting, ginning, warehousing, merchandising, and textile manufacturing. All facets of U.S. and global trade of cotton are covered, so students obtain an understanding of what is required to successfully participate in the U.S. cotton market and its diverse export demands. The students also learn about the important quality attributes of cotton fibers and how these translate into processing efficiency and textile product quality. Throughout the program, students have repeated opportunities to interact with cotton industry representatives as well. For more information visit: https://www.texasintlcottonschool.com
