Partnerships and Initiatives

Texas Governor's School

The Texas Governors School was established by the Texas Legislature to provide a rich and challenging academic experience for advanced high school students. Lamar University will sponsor a 2017 Texas Governor's School in Beaumont, Texas.

ExxonMobil Bernard Harris Summer Science Camp

This is a two-week residential camp hosted at colleges and universities across the nation.  In summer 2016, The Harris Foundation (THF), in partnership with the ExxonMobil Foundation, hosted 10 residential camps held during the months of June-August. Each camp provided an average of 40 rising 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students the opportunity to enhance their proficiency in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education while living on a college campus - all at no cost to the child or family.

The Lamar University Center for Executive Leadership

The Lamar University Center for Executive Leadership (CEL) selectively and competitively places academic executives from around the country into specialized training academies. School executives come together to test ideas, to be exposed to new concepts and new information, to build networks, and to engage in face-to-face interactions with session leaders and each other. CEL programs take on key issues that make a difference in the lives of students, in the success of campuses and districts, and in the practice of educational administration. Administrators wishing more information on the academies can find it on this website.
