CHASP is the sponsor of the student and alumni organization LBJ Social Policy Network (SPN). The SPN welcomes any LBJ student whose area of interest is or intersects with any pressing social policy issue. Throughout the year, SPN and CHASP collaborate to provide students and alumni a platform to connect and interact with each other, distinguished faculty, and key policymakers and decision makers.
CHASP also supports LBJ students through the CHASP Ambassador program, providing sponsorships for special events, conferences, and opportunities throughout the year. CHASP Ambassador opportunities are communicated via the student/alumni SPN listserv.
We encourage all students whose area of interest is or intersects with any of these policy issues to connect to SPN and CHASP: poverty, social mobility, public education, criminal justice, juvenile justice, early childhood, child welfare, family supports, adolescent health, family structure, food insecurity, mental health, reproductive health, healthcare, health finance, aging, housing, and transportation.
