Former White House Chief Of Staff Bolten to Speak At Texas A&M, Receive Award

Joshua Bolten, former White House chief of staff under President George W. Bush, will speak at the Bush School at Texas A&M University on Jan. 26. Bolten will join Acting Dean of the Bush School, Andrew Card, in a discussion of “Political Polarization: Its Causes and Its Cure.” The event is part of the ConocoPhillips White House Lecture Series. It will be held in the Annenberg Presidential Conference Center, beginning at 5:30 p.m.

While on campus, Bolten also will receive the Good Governance Award presented by the Mosbacher Institute for Trade, Economics and Public Policy. The award recognizes exemplary public service and raises the visibility of advanced analysis in policymaking.

During the Bush administration, Bolten also served as director of the Office of Management and Budget and as deputy chief of staff for policy. His nearly 20 years of government service include positions as general counsel to the US Trade Representative, chief trade counsel to the Senate Finance Committee, and as an attorney in the US State Department.

A native of Washington, D.C., Bolten received his undergraduate degree from Princeton (1976) and his law degree from Stanford (1980). He serves on the boards of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum (Vice Chair), the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund (Co-Chair) and the ONE Campaign (where he served from January-July 2011 as Interim CEO).

The event is open to the public, but seating is limited. To reserve a seat, contact the Mosbacher Institute at mosbacher@bushschool.tamu.edu or by phone at (979) 845-1927.
