The Dean of Students Office hosted the 2016 Texas State Leadership Institute Conference on February 19-20, 2016. The conference theme was "Bridged Through Experiences: The Immigrant Story," and tied into the Common Experience theme for the university. The primary purpose of the conference is to bring together students to learn leadership skills, engage students in values-based activities that foster personal leadership development, build a unified community, cultivate social responsibility, and inspire students to adopt a new way of life while expanding their leadership potential. We welcomed approximately 300 students from Texas State University and ten other colleges and universities.
