The Oregon TRIO Association proudly presents the Student Leadership Conference hosted at Southern Oregon University on April 26th, 2024. This year’s theme is “Courage to Lead.” Please note that no overnight accommodations are provided this year. We will offer another student event in June in Salem, our Civic Leadership conference (more information on that event can be found here).


Registration is now open and free for Oregon TRIO programs with a paid 2024 membership. Programs can reserve tickets and recruit students to attend without providing OTA a student roster.


Participating students will be provided with lunch for the day and eligible to win raffle prizes. For a tentative agenda, please see below.


We look forward to seeing you at this exciting event!
