2019 LBJ School Alumni Weekend dates announced | LBJ School of Public Affairs | The University of Texas at Austin

The LBJ School and LBJ Alumni Board are proud to announce the second annual Alumni Weekend, continuing the tradition of hosting those classes celebrating their 5th, 10th, 15th, etc. reunion. The LBJ School Alumni Weekend reunion takes place one weekend early each fall semester, this year beginning on Friday, Sept. 20 and going to Sunday, Sept.  22. Mark your calendar!

The 2019 Alumni Weekend will include:


  • Outstanding Alumni Awards (LBJ School Lobby) All LBJ alumni, faculty, staff, and students are invited to attend this kickoff reception. The Distinguished Public Service Award and Rising Leader Award will be presented. We encourage you to nominate a classmate by May 31. You can find award and nomination details HERE.


  • LBJ Great Tailgate Society's Alumni Tailgate (LBJ School Breezeway) Event will begin three to four hours prior to Oklahoma State vs. Texas game.
  • Oklahoma State vs. Texas Football Game (Darrell K Royal – Texas Memorial Stadium) Kickoff TBA.
  • Individual Class Reunion Events*


  • Individual Class Reunion Events*

*Coordinated by class leaders. See additional information below.

The success of these reunions depends on alumni volunteers from celebrating classes to serve as class leaders to plan and lead their own events. Individuals interested in serving as class leaders will be expected to 1) help with outreach to classmates; 2) facilitate attendance at the planned Friday and Saturday events; and 3) plan additional class-related events (if they so desire) throughout the weekend.

We have an Alumni Reunion Toolkit, which includes advice and examples of what classes have done in the past. While our timeline this year is a bit expedited relative to the toolkit, we have a head start with two events already scheduled, and assistance will be available from the Alumni Board Outreach Committee and the LBJ School alumni relations coordinator, Amanda Mendez. To indicate your interest in participating, please reach out to Amanda at lbjalum@austin.utexas.edu.
