Student Leaders Conference

The Cockrell School of Engineering Student Division Offices hosts the Annual Student Leaders Conference to train, support, and excite student leaders across the Cockrell School including student office staff, mentors, tutors and student organization leaders.

Over 3500 students have been trained at the Conference since its inception in 2005. Goals of the Conference include:

  1. Quality and consistent training of student employees and leaders within the Cockrell School of Engineering is achieved while minimizing resource expenditures
  2. Student employees and leaders are shown how they fit into the Cockrell School of Engineering and how they are part of the Cockrell School of Engineering team which is larger than their individual organizations
  3. Participants, Cockrell School of Engineering staff and supporters find the Student Leaders Conference beneficial and valuable
  4. Networking opportunities between student leaders are provided in a fun, enjoyable training environment

The Student Leaders Conference is held the Monday before classes begin in the fall semester.
