Mission Statement

Former students of the Bush School of Government & Public Service elected new leadership for their Former Student Network (FSN). This year's board is going to focus on strengthening the organization and developing a communications strategy.


The purpose of The Network is to increase the supply of highly competent, highly ethical, and highly dedicated public servants throughout the world educated at the Bush School by

  1. encouraging the continued flow of outstanding student candidates to the Bush School,
  2. assisting the Bush School in keeping its curriculum and educational programs relevant to the current needs of public policy practitioners by communicating with the School administration,
  3. serving as a comprehensive support network within the Texas A&M system for current and former students as they pursue their careers,
  4. promoting the visibility of the Bush School and helping the School meet its financial needs, and
  5. maintaining continued interest of former students in the success of the Bush School and Texas A&M through active membership in The Bush School Former Students Network and The Association of Former Students.
