Texas

The Texas SSN group formed in 2014, and seeks to unite scholars across the Lone Star State in working toward creating and implementing better public policy for all. So far, members hail from such diverse institutions as the University of Houston, Texas Christian University, Southern Methodist University, Texas A&M, and the University of Texas at Austin and El Paso - and more are on the way. Texas SSN scholars are engaged in a wide range of research and civic activities, from health reform implementation to education policy to immigration law.
