A Message from the President

 

We are living in dynamic times.  The electoral and demographic landscape of Texas looks even more different and diverse than it did a hundred years ago in 1922.  Global events have led to private and public sector leaders facing challenges never seen by their predecessors.  But the convergence of these circumstances also present new opportunities.  The Texas Lyceum is well-positioned to play a pivotal role in leading our great state in this new environment.  

Our Texas Lyceum Directors and Alumni are influential leaders who serve their communities and collaborate on the solutions and innovations that will take the state through this decade.  We work together to foster greater connectivity and keep a focus on the future of Texas.
