2011 Big 12 Conference Leadership Summit
July 18, 2010
In 2007 the Big 12 Conference Leadership Summit was originated by the Big 12 Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and the Dr. Prentice Gautt Student-Athlete Welfare Committee. This program is funded by the Big 12 Conference Board of Directors. The purpose of the Summit is to provide leadership opportunities for student-athletes through targeted programming including: diversity, leadership skill building exercises and analysis, self awareness, communication, decision making, problem solving and collaborative skills.

On June 24-26, 2011 the Leadership Summit will be hosted by the University of Oklahoma Athletic Department and held at the Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium in Norman, OK. Over two and a half days of carefully designed programming, forty Big 12 student-athletes participate in presentations, personal reflection, team building events and discussions. The participants represent a cross section of sports that include men's and women's basketball, wrestling, volleyball, track & field, golf, rowing, tennis, equestrian, soccer and football. The diverse group of student-athletes were nominated by their respective member institutions and confirmed by Leadership Summit selection committee which was comprised by representatives of the Big 12 Conference, Big 12 SAAC and the host institution.
