Contemporary studies of leadership suggest strongly that our nation needs ethical and imaginative leaders at every level. The future of our society depends on leaders who are capable of providing strong leadership, who understand that leadership means service, and who believe that their very citizenship carries the obligation to lead when circumstances require. The study of ethical leadership is a critical component of a public affairs education, and it must be incorporated into a student's experience along with the traditional emphasis on policy analysis and formulation.

Through the creation of a Center for Ethical Leadership in the LBJ School of Public Affairs, the school intends to self-consciously promote the development of leadership potential among our students and other constituents. The Center for Ethical Leadership will prepare graduates for leadership positions in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors and for the ethical challenges they will encounter throughout their careers.
