A Call To Service For LBJ Alumni

From The 2013 Summer Transition Committee

We would like to announce a volunteer opportunity for those of you who are still working or living in the Austin area. This summer, we are in charge of putting together a program that introduces incoming LBJ School students to life in Austin, and more importantly to the expectations for their upcoming time in and around the classroom. We are looking to host two luncheons for these incoming students at which LBJ School alumni will discuss their experiences in the public affairs or global policy studies degree programs, the important skills and lessons they learned that benefited their careers, and where life has taken them since graduation. Each luncheon will have a panel format; four alumni will sit on each panel, and in addition to giving their thoughts they will also take questions from incoming students. These events will occur during Camp LBJ, when new students have the chance to gain a full introduction to academic, social, and cultural life within the LBJ community.

These luncheons will be held on August 1 and 13, and will fill a two-hour window between 12:30 and 2:30 p.m. If you are interested in taking part, please contact David Cranston, and he will be happy to discuss this further. Your participation would be greatly appreciated. We consider it extremely valuable for our newest members of the LBJ community to interact with those whose LBJ degrees have led to successful careers and widespread impacts in the public, private and nonprofit sectors. In short, if you will be around Austin in August and can spare a couple hours to share your thoughts and advice with the incoming class, we would love to have you.
Remember, what starts here truly does change the world.
Warm regards,

The 2013 Summer Transition Committee
Ashley Haustein (MPAff '14)
David Cranston (MPAff '14)
Michael Gaudini (MPAff '14)
