Great Conversations

March 21 @ 5:00 pm to 8:30 pm CDT

Great Conversations is the Annette Strauss Institute’s signature, annual fundraising event to benefit our education, outreach, and research programs. At the event, we celebrate a commitment to civic involvement with special recognitions, the presentation of the Shirley Bird Perry Longhorn Citizenship Award to Texas State Senator Judith Zaffirini, the inaugural presentation of the Corporate Citizenship Award to H-E-B, and table conversations led by prominent statewide and community leaders. 

Over the years, Great Conversations has become an annual convening of elected officials and staff, community and student leaders, university faculty and administrators, and members of the press.
