UTEP L.I.V.E. is a university-wide student leadership experience intended to further engage students in the University and support the goals and objectives of the Colleges. UTEP L.I.V.E. provides students opportunities to create a leadership development experience that goes beyond a traditional 2-3 day conference. The goal of the conference is to help students understand the importance of leadership development as well as civic engagment.
To aid the mission of the event, the New Politics Forum hosted a Careers in Politics panel and a Civic Opportunity Reflection Session. The Careers in Politics panelists were Texas Civic Ambassador Oscar Flores, El Paso County Judge Ruben John Vogt, El Paso Councilman Peter Svarzbein, and NPF alumnae and Voto Latino's Organizing and Outreach Coordinator Mary Ibarra.
