The LBJ School Celebrates 50 Years In the Arena

In 2020, we celebrate the LBJ School's half-century of impact, not just within the walls of academia, but also on public and social policies around the world. The 50th anniversary will capture the legacy of a great institution — embodied in the board of trustees and over 4,500 alumni, as well as prominent friends and supporters. We will feature today's most prominent leaders, dreamers and doers — those in the arena who dare to dream, dare to achieve . . . for good. TIME logo will support the special anniversary as the media partner of the LBJ 50th.
