Calling all K-12 educators! Join us for our annual summer educator institute, July 13-17, 2020, at the LBJ Presidential Library.

During this five-day institute, we will explore significant topics related to President Johnson's political career, as well as the lasting impact and legacy of the legislation passed during his presidency. Through lectures and conversations with experts in the field, educators will dive into Great Society programs such as civil rights, immigration, education, and the environment, in addition to examining matters in American foreign policy including escalation of the Vietnam War, Cold War tensions, and the Six Day War.

In addition to the sessions and workshops, highlights of the institute include:

  • Evening reception with after-hours access to the museum
  • Field trip to the LBJ Ranch, also known as the Texas White House
  • Swag bag of materials and resources for your classroom


The institute is limited to 40 educators. Applications are open now and through Feb. 15, 2020. To apply, you must fill out the online application and attach a resume and a letter of support from your supervisor. All participants will be notified of acceptance by March 1, 2020. Once accepted, there will be a $50 fee to reserve your spot.

Each educator in attendance will receive a $250 stipend. Breakfast and lunch will be served each full day of the institute and if needed, housing on The University of Texas at Austin campus will be provided.
