Cory Powell, director of Mentor Tech, has been integral in making that happen.
"One of the things Dr. Cosby and I have spoken about is having an event exclusively for students, the majority of them juniors and seniors, where they have the opportunity to glean life lessons from Dr. Cosby," Powell said.
"Lubbock is quickly becoming not as segregated," Powell said.
Once that decision had been made, Powell had another suggestion.
"Cory said, 'We have students at the university that affirm these quadrants,' " Cosby said.
The problem, Powell said, is many students in lower socioeconomic groups don't consider college a viable option.
"They think you have to be rich or an athlete," he said.
That's where Mentor Tech comes in. The organization seeks to advance the quality of educational experiences of students from underrepresented groups, according to its website,
"Tech has a wonderful program with South Plains College because of the declining number of minorities in STEM fields - science, technology, engineering and math," Powell said.
"For me, it's an honor to have Dr. Cosby, and I appreciate his willingness to go where the rubber meets the road," Powell said.
And the reason Cosby will talk to first-generation college students is because those who have succeeded have a duty to uphold, Powell said.
"Now you have a commitment going forward, a responsibility to reach back and help others along the way," he said.

Cory Powell is the associate director of Mentor Tech, a program designed to enhance the quality of the educational experience of students from underrepresented populations. About 54 percent of Mentor Tech participants are first-generation college students, which Tech defines as having no immediate family members who graduated from a four-year university, Powell said.
"These students face some challenges because no one has ever done it," Powell said. "Whether they're coming from a rural area or a metropolitan area, stepping onto a campus for the first time can be overwhelming."
Finding support on campus is crucial to first-generation college students, Powell said.
Powell said first-generation college students not only empower themselves, but encourage other family members to pursue higher education. The experience positions the family to change the trajectory of their lives, he said.
Gloria hopes to inspire her nephews and nieces to attend college. She currently is looking for a teaching job in the Lubbock area.
She encourages other first-generation college students to find a supportive group and take time to experience college.
