Hobby School Annual Luncheon 2019


Join the University of Houston Hobby School of Public Affairs for its 6th annual luncheon on October 8!

With less than 2 weeks before early voting begins on October 21, the Hobby School of Public Affairs' mayoral debate will be moderated by Dr. Richard Murray and KHOU's Shern-Min Chow. The luncheon will be held at the Wortham Center. 

All luncheon proceeds benefit the 2020 Leland Fellows program. Leland Fellows offers University of Houston undergraduate students the opportunity to work as full-time interns in Washington, DC. Assigned to Texas congressional members, Leland Fellows gain knowledge of the legislative process by observation, participation, research and writing.  Combining supervised academic study with practical training allows the Fellows to earn upper level credit hours in political science while receiving a stipend and paid housing.
