Policy Leaders of Texas
Every Texan’s Policy Leaders of Texas Fellowship Program is a pilot initiative that provides students with resources, knowledge, and social justice framework to engage in and champion issues in higher education policy.
Through the program tenets — empowerment, learning, and leadership development — fellows are given the tools to shape the future of public policy in Texas for themselves and every Texan accessing higher education.
