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.
