The summit, titled “Leadership: It’s a Marathon, Not a Sprint,” will feature Meb Keflezighi as the keynote speaker.

Doors will open at 7:15 a.m., and the event will start at 8 a.m. with a presentation by Keflezighi. It will continue with a leadership panel discussion at 9 a.m. From 10:45 a.m. until noon, there will be a roundtable where hot topic discussions will take place.

General admission is $99, and sponsorship of a table of six is $500. The event is free to registered students, faculty and staff. As seating is limited, reservations are required at ut.edu/cfl/leadershipsummit/.
