Diversity & Inclusion

Statement of Commitment

The Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs is driven by a core mission: creating the greatest good for the greatest number of people. We are committed to a learning environment that promotes a culture of diversity inclusive of race, ethnicity, gender identity, ability, religion, national origin, political perspective, family educational history, sexual orientation and socioeconomic status.  

Notes from the Diversity & Inclusion Committee

The D&I Committee serves as a steward of the LBJ School's commitment to diversity, inclusion and social justice. We are made up of faculty and students from a range of backgrounds and policy interests, but all sharing in the core mission of the school.

We work closely with the school's leadership team to ensure that a culture of diversity and inclusion is woven throughout the LBJ experience, in which all members of the LBJ community feel welcome and their voices are heard and respected.

The D&I Committee believes that intentional and collective efforts across the school, university and community are needed to achieve the greatest good for the greatest number of people. We look forward to engaging with you, so please contact us!
