Upcoming Events

Student Affairs Symposium
Thursday, March 12, 2020
LBJ Student Center 

The Student Affairs Symposium will take place on Thursday, March 12th. This year, staff members will have two options for symposium attendance, morning (9:00 am - 12:00 pm) or afternoon (1:00 - 4:00 pm), which a lunch available to all who sign up in between. The sessions will cover the same topics and have the same speakers. Our hope is that offering two options increases participation, as co-workers can alternate attendance times. Topics and sessions will be released at a later date.
