Leadership in the Public Arena

The Center for Politics and Governance and the LBJ School of Public Affairs will prepare our graduates to take on leadership roles in government, non-profits and non-governmental organizations in local, state, national, and global arenas. This initiative includes a new leadership lecture series that will serve the dual purpose of engaging the UT and wider Austin community and showcasing scholars and leaders drawn from our own community. In today's globalized, networked world, leaders face a daunting set of challenges. We hope that this series will help us not only understand but also meet these challenges.

The Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs launched its 40th anniversary celebration "LBJ@40" with a new LBJ School Fall Leadership Lecture Series. The inaugural series featured noted speakers from the University, the Austin community, and Central Texas who offered their thoughts on leadership from the perspectives of politics, history, ethics, philanthropy, business, and athletics. All events were hosted by Ambassador Robert L. Hutchings, dean of the LBJ School..........

"Preparing our graduates to take on leadership roles in government, non-profits and non-governmental organizations in local, state, national, and global arenas has been the mission of the LBJ School since the School opened its doors to its inaugural class in 1970," said Hutchings. "It is fitting that we launch our year of anniversary events with a new leadership lecture series that will serve the dual purpose of engaging the UT and wider Austin community and showcasing scholars and leaders drawn from our own community. In today's globalized, networked world, leaders face a daunting set of challenges. We hope that this series will help us not only understand but also meet these challenges."
