2016 Texas State Leadership Institute Annual Conference

The Dean of Students Office will host the Texas State Leadership Institute Annual Conference on February 19-20, 2016. 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.

The conference theme is "Bridged Through Experiences: The Immigrant Story". Our featured speakers include José M. Hernández, American engineer and former NASA astronaut, and Julissa Arce, Co-founder and Chairman of the Ascend Educational Fund. We are excited to welcome more than 400 students from Texas State University and other regional colleges and universities.
