Bush Center

The Bush Center, located on the campus of Southern Methodist University, is home to the Bush Institute and Bush Presidential Library and Museum.

The Kinders were interested in the ambitious vision of former President George W. Bush and his wife, Laura, to make a positive global impact and supported the construction of the George W. Bush Institute with a $10 million grant. The Institute is an action-oriented organization, focused on results-based solutions for improving the human condition.

The Bush Institute assembled a team of top experts, scholars, business leaders and practitioners to address today’s challenges: improve America’s public schools; foster democracy and support freedom advocates; save lives through global health programs; promote free markets and economic growth; empower women as catalysts of change; and honor the service and sacrifice of our military.

The George W. Bush Presidential Center was dedicated on April 25, 2013.
