The School of Economic, Political and Policy Sciences develops the decisive, thoughtful leaders of tomorrow. We teach our students to think, analyze and predict outcomes in four major focus areas—public affairs, criminology, economics and political science. We teach them to hold our future in their hands.
We do this through an interdisciplinary framework that encourages students to think through a problem from every angle, deciphering the complex effects a decision will have on investment, public safety, health, governance and education. Our students learn to sort through the clutter of information with an unbiased eye to find the facts so the most good can be done.
Earning our place at the top
Every major Tier One university has a leading school of public policy. As UTD continues its progress toward Tier One, it is imperative that the School of Economic, Political and Policy Sciences continues to grow in size and stature to join these elite ranks.
To do this, we must grow our endowment to provide the long-term stability that so many of our peers have built over the past 50 to 75 years. More endowed chairs, professorships and graduate student fellowships will allow us to compete effectively for outstanding scholars. Undergraduate scholarships will ensure that the best students can choose UT Dallas. Endowed support for our research centers and outreach institutes will enable them to conduct research on quality-of-life issues that affect us all.
Invest in the future
The School of Economic, Political and Policy Sciences spans a range of disciplines and knowledge, from economics to public policy, criminology to geospatial science, sociology to public affairs. All focus on educating outstanding, innovative public servants and industry leaders so they can determine real and longlasting solutions to societal problems. With your support, we can seize the opportunities that will shape our future.
