Global Grit Initiative
Lone Star College-Tomball has become a leader in the practice of incorporating good GRIT into the classroom. The Global GRIT Initiative is a project in which LSC-Tomball will partner with other advocates for the importance of GRIT to the average college student to continue developing ways to encourage good GRIT and share what we've learned.
The first annual GRIT Summit, was held October 14, 2016 brought together 100 representatives from community colleges, ISDs, and global educational research firms to discuss what GRIT is, why it is important, and what the future of GRIT in the classroom should look like.
Grit Summit 2017 was held on Friday, October 13, 2017, and brought together nearly 200 representatives from colleges, ISDs, local businesses, and community members. During this summit, participants learned about how others used grit in the workplace, with children, in everyday life, and in many different environments.
