Event description

Description

The Texas Education Consortium for Male Students of Color is hosting its annual Leadership Summit on August 9-10, 2018 at the University of Texas at Austin. The consortium is a state-wide collaboration with a mission to implement and sustain effective policies, programs and practices focused on increasing individual success and post-secondary completion for male students of color. It seeks to align and coordinate existing programs and services that target underrepresented male students from middle school through college. The core values of the consortium are: student empowerment, collective knowledge, culture of evidence, educational achievement, and scale and sustainability.

The Leadership Summit will bring approximately 400 young male students of color, their mentors and teachers to UT Austin to participate in two days of workshops, professional exchange and career development. Sessions will feature discussions around social justice and the law enforcement system, male mentoring research and best practices, and health and wellness topics. Participants will include African American and Latino business leaders, researchers and educators as well as student leaders from across the state. If you would like more information regarding the program or have questions please contact Jorge Rodriguez at jorge@austin.utexas.edu .
