Campaign Bootcamp

Friday, May 26 - Sunday, May 28

Belo Center for New Media

The University of Texas at Austin

Looking to learn what it takes to create a 

successful political campaign, advocate for a cause, 

or run for office?


Register to attend Campaign Bootcamp!


Seats are limited and will be filled on 

a first-come, first-serve basis. 


Don't miss this opportunity to hear from active political professionals about what it's like to work on a campaign. Republican and Democratic experts will explain the basic fundamentals of how to run a campaign, answer your questions about race strategies and tactics, and share lessons they have learned in the field.


Campaign Bootcamp also features a unique, interactive component where participants work together on mock campaign teams to craft a real-life campaign plan for their candidate. At the end of the weekend, teams present their plans to our mock "Texas Campaign Commission" of political professionals to try and win their endorsement.


Visit our website to learn more about the weekend, available scholarships and group discounts,
