(Aug. 14, 2014) -- The UTSA Student Leadership Center will host the ribbon cutting and grand opening of its new office from 2 to 4 p.m., Wednesday, Aug. 27 at University Center Room 1.00.40 -- the new facility on the ground floor faces the paseo. The open house is free and open to the public.
Guests can learn about the many opportunities offered by the UTSA Student Leadership Center including annual participation in the Civil Rights and Social Justice Experience and the Texas Conference for Women.
The center facilitates and provides intentional and purposeful leadership encounters for students through education, engagement and experience. The new location will better provide leadership programming and national conference experiences for students. SLC offers a variety of resources for developing student leaders across the university.
"My work with the UTSA Student Leadership Center allows me the opportunity to help other students develop," said Embler Igwe, student assistant at the center and political science major with a minor in legal studies. "I have the opportunity to work in a supportive, creative environment. The best part about working at the center is that I have a hand in the creation of tomorrow's leaders."
In addition to the grand reopening, the center will reunite graduates from its annual LeaderShape institutes, a six-day program that teaches students how to lead with integrity and positively impact the world. Approximately 240 UTSA students have completed the institute since its inception.
The UTSA Student Leadership Grand Reopening is part of UTSA Roadrunner Days, the official kick-off of the new academic year running Aug. 22-29 at the Main and Downtown campuses. The events celebrate the start of the new school year and give students an opportunity to preview campus life and connect with UTSA resources and traditions.
