Conferences & Paper Submissions

It’s that time of semester again, and the applications for the Spring 2015 CHANGE Institute (which will be held this semester on Friday and Saturday, February 27th and 28th) have just opened!

If you haven’t attended CHANGE before, we highly encourage you to apply! Next to LEAP, CHANGE is one of LEI’s oldest programs and the lessons learned at CHANGE serve as a huge source of the way LEI conceptualizes leadership. We’d love to have as many LEI student leaders there possible!

Please feel free to pass along the below information far and wide to your fellow students and colleagues!

Are you interested in learning and expanding your awareness of diversity, social justice, and social responsibility? Do you want to enhance your leadership skills? Do you want to engage in dialogue with others? If so, you don’t want to miss this opportunity!

The Leadership and Ethics Institute, in the Office of the Dean of Students, is proud to host The Spring 2015 CHANGE Institute: Transforming Self and Community. All currently enrolled undergraduate students at UT-Austin, who have never attended the CHANGE Institute previously, are encouraged to apply. This transformative weekend institute will focus on critical issues relating to diversity, social justice, and social responsibility.

Please feel free to contact Jayme Dale Mallindine, Graduate Assistant for LEI, at jayme.mallindine@austin. utexas.edu <mailto:jayme.mallindine@ austin.utexas.edu> if you have any questions or concerns about the institute or the application process. The CHANGE Institute, like all of LEI’s student programs, are provided free of cost.
