The Lyndon B. Johnson (LBJ) School of Public Affairs at The University of Texas at Austin was founded in 1970 and has since built a proud tradition of public service and cutting edge research on the most important public policy challenges of our time.
Its academic programs and research projects are at the forefront in the areas of health and social policy, education policy, international affairs and trade, technology policy, leadership, economics, energy and environment, and public and non-profit management. The LBJ School supports a world-renowned, multi-disciplinary faculty and benefits from the vast resources of The University of Texas at Austin, one of the world’s leading research universities.
The School’s research initiatives are conducted under centers of excellence, including the Center for Health and Social Policy (CHASP). PEEQ is an initiative under CHASP at the LBJ School. These centers serve as a framework for engaging faculty and other resources in the School’s research enterprise.
