The LBJ School In the Arena
Public policy is a call to service that requires commitment, creativity, courage and a passion to innovate and help shape the world. The LBJ School was founded in 1970 to harness that passion for service and to foster better governance, better leadership and better cooperation. It broke new ground with an approach combining theory with practice, preparing students to create real change in communities from the local level to the global.
Fifty years later, the LBJ School is a leader in its programs, its research and its impact on policy decisions. LBJ's students, alumni and faculty create new approaches, breach barriers, push boundaries and fight against entrenchment and dysfunction.
