We are thrilled to announce our keynote speaker for the 2018 Summer Institute: Kyle Clark.

Kyle Clark is the Program Manager for the University Leadership Network (ULN), an incentive based scholarship program for nearly 2,000 undergraduates at the University of Texas at Austin.  ULN’s primary goal is to help students in the program graduate in four years and secure their next steps, such as attending graduate school.  Kyle’s role is primarily to manage the day to day operations of the scholarship program and supervise the coordinator staff that work with nearly 500 students in each cohort.  Kyle received his bachelor’s degree in psychology from Oklahoma State University and a master’s degree in Higher Education Administration from the University of Texas at Austin in '04.

Kyle loves working with college students and enjoys challenging them to think critically about important issues and focusing on sharing their story.  Kyle has served as an advisor and mentor to thousands of students and has traveled nationally as an accomplished speaker, facilitator and social justice advocate.  One of the most important ways Kyle wants his audiences to approach life is to understand that each of us are “built for greatness!”
