For the second year in a row the Texas Education Consortium for Male Students of Color will host the UT Male Student Leadership Summit at the University of Texas at Austin on August 13-14th. This year we are expecting a record crowd of young men of color and professionals representing three Independent School Districts, eleven community colleges, and six universities from across the state of Texas.
This year we are excited to introduce a professional networking career/education fair as well as new topics for both our professional and student track workshops. Our students will have the opportunity to meet with representatives from KPMG, Google, Union Pacific, among others, to explore different career options after graduation. New topics in our professional track workshops include: Latinos at HBCUs, the thriving Latino male in higher education and collaborative consciousness in institutional support for African American and Latino male students. In addition, this year, our student track workshops will feature topics on building trusting relationships with Law enforcement, a workshop introducing our male participants to gender and sexuality and a workshop on how to successfully navigate the transfer process from the community college to a four-year university- to name a few. The program for this year’s summit represents the Consortium’s continued commitment to improving the educational and professional opportunities for our male students of color across the state of Texas. We look forward to a great event! Stay tuned for our post-summit highlights.
