T.R.E.E. Conference is an acronym for the Thomas Rivera Educational Empowerment Conference and was launched in the Fall of 2006. Dr. Thomas Rivera was a migrant worker who worked alongside his family in the fields before graduating from the University of Oklahoma. Several years after his graduation from OU, Dr. Rivera was named the Chancellor of the University of California at Riverside making him the first minority ever to reach the position.


T.R.E.E. Conference is the LARGEST Latino Educational Empowerment Conference for High School Students in the State of Oklahoma. This conference was created to promote higher education among Latino High School Students of Oklahoma through Informative Seminars, College Fair consisting of 2 year Colleges, 4 year Universities, and Trade Schools, and a Scholarship Banquet. 

The conference has been a tremendous success and keeps exceeding previous expectations every year for the past 16 conferences. In the Fall of 2021, the Historic T.R.E.E Conference hosted hundreds of Latino and marginalized high school students and was able to award over $32,000 in scholarships to High School Seniors. While the goal of the conference is to promote higher education, it also attempts to promote the University of Oklahoma. We are extremely proud to say that several of the students who attend T.R.E.E Conference (especially those who are awarded scholarships) later become a part of the OU family.

 The 17th Annual T.R.E.E. Conference will be held on Friday, November 18th, 2022 at the University of Oklahoma.
