(April 29, 2011)--The UTSA Student Leadership Center recently hosted the first Storytelling Luncheon to bring together students, faculty, staff and administrators in a casual atmosphere to share leadership stories. More than 40 students and seven Student Affairs administrators came to the event in the University Center, where they networked and discussed leadership ideas, experiences and challenges.
Discussion topics included the value of higher education, generational differences, leadership styles, and social capital versus the value of academics. The discussion included leadership topics in the media including the book "The Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mom" by Amy Chua.
Administrators attending included Gage Paine, vice president for student affairs; Kevin Price, associate vice president for student life and dean of students; John Kaulfus, associate dean of students; Marlon Anderson, director of inclusion and community engagement; Lowa Mwilambwe, University Center director; Susan Colorado-Burt, director of learning communities; and Jennifer Rames, assistant director of volunteer services.
Students facilitating discussion included Ana Navarro, Leslie Garcia, Krystal Nicholson, Lacy Guaderrama, Justina Williams and DeMarcus Lewis.
The UTSA Student Leadership Center plans to host the Storytelling Series Luncheon once each semester.
