Each year, the Department of Student Life and Services hosts their annual ROAR Leadership Conference. This day-long conference allows students to attend presentations designed to enhance their leadership skills and better prepare them for a professional environment. The conference also has the unique ability to increase networking among local area high school seniors, Victoria College, and UH system students. The conference is of no cost to participants, and encourages these students to interact with not only their peers, but also the presenters. Our past keynote speakers have included Tom Krieglstein, four time winner of Campus Speaker of the Year, who presented on his “Dance Floor Theory”, Mike Fritz, named one of 2015's Hottest Speakers by Campus Activities Magazine, who presented on how he makes leadership F.U.N. and Dr. Jason L. Meriwether, Vice Chancellor for enrollment management and student affairs at Indiana University Southeast, who presented on “Building Your Brand: Leadership to Shape, Share, and Remember”.

The keynote speaker for 2017 will be nationally acclaimed Tedx speaker Joshua Fredenburg.   Fredenburg is the President of the award winning Circle of Change Leadership Experience that specializes in providing individuals the leadership skills necessary to lead effectively in a diverse world and make a positive impact in their community, nation, and world.  During the conference, Fredenburg will present on “Leadership Self-Discovery 101 – Discovering Your Inner Leadership Super Powers Within to Change the World”.  Check out the link below for more information about our upcoming ROAR Leadership Conference.
