Bush School Continues #BushGoesGlobal Campaign to Highlight Global Impact

May 16, 2016


Since its founding, students, faculty, staff, and alumni from the Bush School of Government and Public Service, Texas A&M University, have had an international impact through internships, study abroad and language immersion programs, capstone projects, conferences, and other endeavors. In order to highlight the many ways the School is having a global impact, the Bush School’s Student and Career Services and the Office of Communications and External Relations is continuing the #BushGoesGlobal social media initiative. The purpose of the initiative is to showcase, share, and collect images and social media posts on the activities of students, faculty, staff, and alumni both at home and abroad.

Members of the Bush School community participate in the social media initiative by posting pictures of themselves at their various locations on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram using the hashtag #BushGoesGlobal. Individuals are encouraged to display a poster provided by the School with the hashtag when taking pictures at the various locations. Whether participating in an internship in Texas; a language immersion program in Japan; a work project in Washington, DC; or a conference in Germany, students, faculty, staff, and alumni will use the hashtag to showcase their public service experiences across the country and around the world.

The social media initiative was launched last summer and continues this year with the addition of Bush School alumni and incoming students. This year’s social media initiative will also include a contest for the best creative image from current students (Class of 2017), former students (Class of 2016 or earlier), and incoming students (Class of 2018), in addition to faculty and staff.
