The University of Texas at El Paso’s Student Engagement and Leadership Center (SELC) will host a universitywide, student-­planned and student-driven leadership conference intended to engage students at the University.


What: UTEP L.I.V.E. Student Leadership Conference

When: 5-8 p.m. Friday, March 2 and 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, March 3

Where: UTEP campus

The UTEP L.I.V.E. Student Leadership Conference is designed to provide students with resources, tools and ideas to cultivate their leadership identity. L.I.V.E is an acronym for the pillars of the conference: Leadership, Innovation, Vision and Engagement. This year’s theme, “Make it Happen, Make it Matter,” was developed by the students as an expression of their experiences as students on campus.

A highlight for this year’s conference is an advanced leader workshop track where students who have attended UTEP L.I.V.E. in the past can delve in deeper to their leadership development with a one-day cohort experience as well as a variety of additional workshops.

To close out the conference, UTEP will host American labor leader, feminist and civil rights activist Dolores Huerta as the event’s keynote speaker from 3:30 - 5 p.m. Saturday, March 3 at the Union Cinema, located on the first floor of Union Building East. A limited number of passes for the free keynote address are available to the public on a first come, first served basis. They must be picked up in person at the SELC located in Union Building West, Room 106. One ticket will be given per person. You can contact the SELC at 915-747-5670.

Free parking will be available at the Sun Bowl Parking Garage. Heavy traffic is expected on and around the UTEP campus on Saturday, March 3, due to several events taking place on campus to include Monster Jam at Sun Bowl Stadium.

Tickets for the full conference are on sale for UTEP students only for $20 per student (cash or check only).
