Texas State University will host the second annual TXST STEM Conference on Friday, April 12, 2024 at the LBJ Student Center. The TXST STEM Conference will focus on the achievements of our students and trainees from a range of STEM fields, who will be the NEXT contributors to and leaders of the STEM workforce.

The 2024 conference theme will be “One Health” as described by the One Health High-Level Expert Panel (OHHLEP).

One Health is an integrated, unifying approach that aims to sustainably balance and optimize the health of people, animals, and ecosystems. It recognizes the health of humans, domestic and wild animals, plants, and the wider environment (including ecosystems) are closely linked and interdependent.

The approach mobilizes multiple sectors, disciplines, and communities at varying levels of society to work together to foster well-being and tackle threats to health and ecosystems, while addressing the collective need for healthy food, water, energy, and air, taking action on climate change and contributing to sustainable development.

We invite proposals for conference sessions featuring research projects and best practices that highlight both the conference theme and support STEM workforce development. Proposal abstracts can be submitted for sessions in the following formats: workshop, symposium, or panel. The deadline to submit session proposals is October 1, 2023. For more information about the 2024 TXST STEM Conference, including call for session proposals and sponsorship, visit the conference webpage.

We are excited to host another conference that brings together all colleges at TXST towards collaborating over a unifying topic.
