Bush School Talks

Fall of the Wall image

The Bush School of Government and Public Service frequently hosts experts in the fields of public policy, nonprofit management, international affairs, and public administration through the Bush School Talks program. During the Bush School Talks sessions, a speaker or group of speakers will give a presentation concerning their field of study or lessons learned in a professional career. Each session is followed by an open forum, during which Bush School students are invited to ask questions about the content of the talk.

Recent speakers in the Bush School Talks series include Ryan Crocker, dean of the Bush School; Neal Keny-Guyer, CEO of Mercy Corps; Seamus Kraft, executive director of OpenGov; Todd Moss, COO for the Center for Global Development; and James Edge, the regional director for Congressman Bill Flores. Bush School faculty members also frequently deliver presentations concerning their current research initiatives, many of which are included in the Bush School Talks series.

Topics covered during the Bush School Talks series are as diverse as the speakers. Within the past year, students have heard presentations about the Russian invasion of Ukraine, social media, ISIS, political preferences in Africa, and the challenges of leadership in nonprofit organizations.

The Bush School Talks are video recorded and are made available on the Bush School website at
