The Bush School and Texas A&M University are working to achieve diversity and inclusivity through a strong, demonstrable presence of diversity in our faculty, staff, students, administrators, and supporters; an environment where the opportunity to fully participate does not inappropriately or unintentionally depend on elements of an individual’s identity; and an equitable environment where success depends on work effort and contributions that advance the mission of the University.
The Bush School faculty includes highly regarded academics and seasoned public service and international affairs professionals. All have had distinguished careers; are well credentialed; and are fully engaged in the School's extensive research agenda, institutional activities.
Consistently ranked as one of the best places in the nation to live, the twin communities of Bryan and College Station are literally in the "heart" of Texas. Bryan-College Station is one of the safest, most family-friendly places in Texas. Both cities have well-maintained parks and recreational facilities, have a range of housing options close to the Bush School campus, and there are an ever-increasing number of excellent restaurants in both Bryan and College Station. Within easy reach of four of the largest metropolitan areas in the nation, we can expand our outreach to utilize the best opportunities and resources that Texas offers.
The Bush School welcomes students and working professionals in the fields of state, local, and federal government, international affairs, law enforcement, military, homeland security, nonprofit, the private sector and more. Our online graduate certificates are convenient for the busy professional and may apply toward degrees being pursued at the Bush School.
