Welcome to the Kozmetsky Center of Excellence. The Kozmetsky Center of Excellence is the hub connecting our campus, students, and faculty with civic life in Austin, Texas.

Working with non-profit organizations, public officials, leading scholars, and media experts, the center provides a forum for solving some of our world’s most challenging public issues. We facilitate and promote opportunities for students and faculty to form working relationships with individuals and groups that are civically engaged in a public capacity. 

Our on-campus civics lab, podcasts, student projects, interviews with political experts, along with hosting forums and conversations on campus, provide an engine for generating collaborative  solutions  among experts, students, faculty and the broader public.

The Kozmetsky Center contributes to advancing the mission of St. Edward’s University to educate a diverse student body, preparing graduates with the tools needed to contribute to a more humane, just and sustainable world.
