The mission of the LBJ School is to train both "thinkers and doers," and a hallmark of the LBJ experience is a curriculum that combines academic work with practical experience in the policy world. Every summer, LBJ School students head out into the policy arena to learn more about the kinds of careers they can pursue after graduation — and to gain the experience they'll need to begin. A few of them sent us some details about what they did this year, and what they learned in the process.
