Founding Director’s Lecture Series

The Founding Director’s Lecture Series is designed to engage the public in the Baker Institute’s policy areas of expertise. This series provides a unique forum for Baker Institute Roundtable members, faculty, students and the Houston community to become more informed about key issues of our time, including energy, health care, the Middle East, science and technology policy, tax and expenditure policy, and more. A reception before the event and a post-lecture question-and-answer session allow guests to engage in thoughtful conversation.
