TSTC Leadership Institute

Vision for the TSTC Leadership Institute (TLI)

The TSTC Leadership Institute is dedicated to developing leadership at all levels. In this year-long facilitated program, class participants have the opportunity to explore, enhance, and exercise their own leadership potential in fostering a success only learning environment for students, colleagues, and themselves. Through this Institute, TSTC demonstrates its commitment to continuous learning, as TSTC cannot personify an organization of change without developing the adaptive leadership capacity of its own people.


Developing Leaders at All Levels
I expected “more important” people to get selected, but learned it truly was a wide variety of people. We can learn to be leaders from the bottom all the way up. -- Raquel Rios, Inaugural Learner from TSTC West Texas
