AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - The Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public
Affairs at the University of Texas is getting an upgrade.

A dedication was scheduled Wednesday, with other events through Friday, at the school in Austin as part of $19 million in improvements and introduction of the new dean, Robert Hutchings.

Hutchings took office Monday. The 63-year-old Naval Academy
graduate, in an interview with the Austin American-Statesman, said
he is at the LBJ School "for the long haul."

Hutchings says he wants to increase study-abroad programs,
internships and partnerships with institutions around the world.

Hutchings most recently taught taught international relations at
Princeton University.

The LBJ School's celebration will include a Hispanic leadership
summit, an open house for alumni and panel discussions on public
service careers.
