Why Austin, Texas?

There is no better place in the world to see real-life policy implications than in Austin. Ranked No. 1 on Forbes’ "America's Cities of the Future", No. 8 on Bloomberg Businessweek’s “America’s 50 Best Cities” and the fastest growing large U.S. metro economy according to the U.S. Conference of Mayors, this capital city provides a complete learning laboratory where innovations are occurring at a rapid pace in key policy areas such as trade, energy, health care, poverty, immigration and technology.

We are the only public policy graduate program connected to a Tier I research university, a presidential library, in the world’s 12th largest economy, next to the longest foreign border in the U.S. This is the world’s modern policy laboratory. It’s the arena we call home.
