The Dean of Students Office hosted the 2014 Texas State Leadership Institute Annual Conference on February 21-22, 2014. The primary purpose of the conference was 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.
This year's conference theme is "Leadership and Learning: Celebrating the Journey," and was tied to the Institute's Core Values. Our featured speakers were The Honorable Julián Castro, Mayor San Antonio, Texas, Mr. Don McPherson, Social Activist/Feminist, and Ms. Jessica Gendron Williams, CEO of Phired Up Productions. This year we welcomed 350 students from Texas State University and other regional colleges and universities. We look forward to another incredible conference in 2015!
