  Sponsoring CEPA  


Benefits of sponsoring CEPA conferences

As we enter 2020 and beyond, the  challenge to become a leading university depends on attracting and recruiting top-level students. To keep these students requires a dynamic and highly motivating experience. Today’s students need to know the difference between a K-12 and a university education. Campuses need to encourage dialog among students and faculty and allow future leaders to explore the world of ideas, on and off campus. 

Universities have an opportunity to partner with CEPA to host a conference. Sponsoring an event entitles the campus to assist in selecting the venue and conference theme, develop the program and establish the budget. The CEPA website is available to assist universities with outreach and promotional initiatives. The cost for the rights to sponsor a CEPA conference is $1,000.00

Thanks for the opportunity to present our work on service learning in San Antonio. …we had a great experience, and look forward to next year.  We believe the CEPA conference will be one that can grow and we plan to visit with faculty and doctoral students to get them involved.  Dr. Cindy Boettcher and Dr. Janet Hammer, Texas A&M University at College Station.

Thank you so much, Fred!  Congratulations, once again, on your continuing commitment to excellence and to bringing together a diverse group of collaborators and partners.  It's always a pleasure to work with you…..I enjoy the company of my fellow deans as well—the panel is really enjoyable and I appreciate the opportunity to work with them. Continued best wishes—Dr. Betty Merchant, The University of Texas at San Antonio, October 9-11, 2014.

On behalf of the faculty, staff and students of the School of Business and Leadership, I am pleased to offer this $1,000.00 donation to the furtherance of the CEPA mission! Dr. Robert Bisking, Dean, Our Lady of the Lake University, October 18-20, 2012.

I want to thank you again for the wonderful conference on Visionary Leadership: An Ethical and Innovative Approach to Empowerment that you organized in Corpus Christi earlier this month.  It was a truly outstanding event and I really appreciated the opportunity to attend, to meet all of the very talented people in attendance and also to have the privilege of addressing this group as a Keynote Speaker.  Everyone I talked to was very impressed with the timeliness of the topics and the mentoring approaches that permeated the conference, thanks to your leadership.  So, thank you again so much for putting this all together.  Extremely well done!  CONGRATULATIONS!! Dr. Larry Lemanski, Texas A&M University - Commerce, October 18-20, 2012.

The inspiring and intellectually stimulating conference has ended.  I was very impressed with your innovative program of powerful young future leaders.  It was a trail-blazing experience (to use the Texas vernacular). Dr. J. Fischer, Texas.

As always I feel so fortunate to have been a part of your work. Dr. Rodriguez, you are an inspiration and a focal point for positive humanist change that is so needed right now. You must continue to expand, the world is waiting...Elizabeth Kuder, California, 2002.

Dr. Rodriguez, Thank you very much for creating an environment open to free thinking. Erica Hobbs, New Mexico.

It is also a source of personal joy to know that there are people like Dr. Rodríguez and his outstanding team of colleagues who, though far removed from our daily lives, are still concerned and ready to help us by traveling from their country to unselfishly share their knowledge with us. On behalf of my country El Salvador, I want you to know that your efforts have not fallen on arid ground-on the contrary, your words have been the seed which will be multiplied by the efforts of everyone who has benefited from your work. Marion Francisco Salinas Hernandez, El Salvador

I will share this information with students, faculty and staff in the department who may be interested in attending the leadership conference. On a professional note, congratulations on your achievements as a leader and thank you for your outstanding service to the nation and humanity. Dr. Frederick Nafukho, Texas A&M University - College Station
