The University of Texas at Austin has announced that it will award one of its most prestigious honors—the Presidential Citation—to Admiral B.R. Inman, USN (Ret.), the Lyndon B. Johnson Centennial Chair at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs, at an awards dinner on Jan. 22 at the Blanton Museum of Art hosted by William Powers Jr., president of The University.
"I am deeply honored by this award from My University," Inman said.
The Presidential Citation was created in 1979 to recognize the extraordinary contributions of individuals who personify the university's commitment to the task of transforming lives. The university does not award honorary degrees, and these citations are designed to salute those whose service exemplifies the values shared by The University of Texas at Austin community. In honor of each recipient, a Presidential Citation Endowed Scholarship will be awarded to three students.
Inman was graduated from The University of Texas at Austin in 1950 and began a distinguished career in the U.S. Navy. He was director of the National Security Agency and deputy director of Central Intelligence. He was named an adjunct professor at The University of Texas at Austin in 1987 and was appointed to the Lyndon B. Johnson Centennial Chair in National Policy in 2001. In 2005, he was interim dean of the LBJ School.
