The Texas Leadership Summit
The Texas Leadership Summit was held on Saturday, February 11, 2017 at the Student Activity Center.
The Texas Leadership Summit (The Summit) is a free leadership development conference open to all students at The University of Texas at Austin. The Summit provides a unique space for student leaders to develop and refine leadership competencies through engagement in experiential workshops, breakout sessions, and networking. This diverse community of leaders affords each participant the opportunity to build relationships and identify areas of collaboration to positively impact The Forty Acres.
Goals of the Texas Leadership Summit
- Students will explore the leadership competencies most desired by employers.
- Students will identify two new leadership practices to enhance their career and civic readiness.
- Students will define leadership as a values-based process, not a power-based position.
Mission of the Texas Leadership Summit Advisory Board
The Texas Leadership Summit seeks to empower students to utilize ethical and socially responsible leadership practices. We believe that all students have the capacity to become inclusive leaders and create positive change on the Forty Acres and beyond.
