TESTIMONIALS

The kind of work the Dallas Institute is doing is crucial in today’s chaotic world.  If it didn’t exist, it would have to be invented right now to help us get through.

Jim Lehrer, Journalist

On behalf of all the teachers, faculty, and students who’ve benefited from your inspiration and influence, I salute you.

Laura Bush, First Lady

“I don’t know of any other city that has anything like the Dallas Institute, and every city should.”

James Rouse, Urban Planner
