In the spring of 2010, the University of Texas unveiled a newly renovated and state-of-the-art facility for the LBJ School of Public Affairs. The $19 million revitalization elevated the School’s profile as a dynamic, collaborative, and globally engaged public affairs school. The new building design not only tripled the amount of classroom space, but it integrated the latest in instructional and media technologies, increased the energy efficiency of the systems, and—most importantly—took advantage of the kinetic energy of the students and faculty to encourage discussion, collaboration and collegiality.
