Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson speaks at a podium


The Kay Bailey Hutchison Energy Center for Business, Law, and Policy: An initiative of the McCombs School of Business and the University of Texas School of Law.


    The KBH Energy Initiative seeks to be the pre-eminent energy initiative at the intersection of energy business, law, and policy. We will pursue this mission by leveraging the resources of the McCombs Business and Law Schools, their alumni, and supporters to expand our knowledge and understanding of this crucial industry; to engage, inform, and connect leaders in that industry, in government, and at UT on core energy issues; to educate and inspire students to be the next generation of leaders; to grow the network and reach of the University of Texas throughout the world of energy.

Our Goals

  • Symposium 4

    Ideas and Communication

    We're building a broad platform to study the interdisciplinary issues associated with the needs of the energy industry and consumers. We resolve to convene leaders in the industry, academics, and government for discussion, study, and analysis of these issues.
  • Energy Management students in hard hats


    We aim to support and enhance the educational mission of the McCombs School and the Law School. We strengthen the business and legal education of future leaders in the energy industry and promote innovative and interdisciplinary courses designed to prepare students with a better understanding of the interconnectivity between business, law, and policy in the energy sector.
  • Women in Energy 2


    We've created and supported networks for collaboration among energy professionals, scholars, and government officials, and connected University of Texas students and alumni to such networks.
