SMU Tower Center

SMU Tower Center

The SMU Tower Center seeks to bridge the gap between the world of ideas and scholarship and the practice of politics. Our mission is two-fold: • To promote the study of politics and international affairs and • To stimulate an interest in ethical public service among undergraduates.
We are an academic center in which all parties and views are heard in a marketplace of ideas. We pursue our mission in a non-partisan manner to uphold former U.S. Senator John Tower’s commitment to educate and inspire the next generation of leaders.
