Keynote Speaker: Austin Arias

Austin Arias

Austin Arias is an educator, speaker, facilitator, and consultant who helps students, organizations, and departments realize their potential to make an impact. As a recovering over-involved student leader and trusted educator in the field, he understands first-hand the impact students want to have not only on their communities but in life as leaders—and the hopes professionals have to support the experience. Currently serving as the associate director for leadership development at the University of South Florida, Austin will share insights on finding harmony between your academic, involvement, and personal commitments, while focusing on mental health and building collaborative, values-driven teams.
