About the Odessa College Leadership Institute 

As one of the most highly-awarded institutions of higher education in the nation, Odessa College has received numerous requests from colleges and universities seeking to learn more about the programs, strategies and techniques which have generated such well-documented levels of student success. In response to the steadily-growing volume of these requests, we have developed a two-day interactive, instructional and informational Leadership Institute.

During the fifth annual Odessa College Leadership Institute, administrators, faculty and staff will immerse conference attendees in the OC experience and its student-focused culture, with the ultimate goal of enabling them to take back practices and strategies to impact rapid change on their own campuses.

The Leadership Institute evolved, in part, from the encouragement of education leaders both nationally and in Texas to share our story. We are also indebted to the many colleges in several states that have already adopted or begun to adopt our high impact strategies and found measurable improvement in student success.
