DC Students

Discover a Center for Policy Leadership

The LBJ Washington Center fosters nonpartisan policy analysis and dialogue on the critical issues facing the country and the world.

Academic Program

The LBJ Washington Center is home to the LBJ School's innovative DC Concentration, which gives students the comparative advantage of working, learning and interacting with federal policymakers while earning their master’s degrees and graduate six months early with full degrees.

DC Concentration


The LBJ Washington Center, located in the historic Washington DC Greyhound bus terminal, serves as a forum for bipartisan research and policy and as a hub for disseminating research from the LBJ School and UT faculty. The Center brings together the national academic community and public policy practitioners through high-profile educational, networking and social events, that create opportunities to meet senior federal policymakers in diverse settings.
