2016 Texas State Leadership Institute Annual Conference

The Dean of Students Office hosted 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 was "Bridged Through Stories: The Immigrant Experience". Our featured speakers were José M. Hernández, American engineer and former NASA astronaut, and Julissa Arce, Co-founder and Chairman of the Ascend Educational Fund. We were excited to welcome 300 students from Texas State University and other regional colleges and universities.
