Angela Evans became dean of the LBJ School of Public Affairs in 2016. She joined the LBJ School as a clinical professor of the practice of public policy after 40 years in public service to the U.S. Congress. During the last 13 of these years, she was the deputy director of the Congressional Research Service, leading major organizational changes that enhanced the research capacity of the service and improved the effectiveness of critical operations. Among her achievements were the creation of unique management positions to lead the service’s research and analysis, the development and implementation of an agency-wide research agenda directly aligned with the legislative deliberations of Congress, the introduction of performance standards to evaluate the success of the service, the development of a performance assessment system for service staffers, and the creation of the first federally funded succession plan to address the potential retirement of a large cohort of the workforce. Professor Evans has been the recipient of research awards including grants from the Policy Research Institute, the National Science Foundation and the Dirksen Congressional Center. She has been honored with the Texas Exes Teaching Award and the LBJ School accolades of Most Valuable Class, Most Helpful Professor to Students and Best New Professor.
