It's universally accepted that Wernher Von Braun's vision and influence were integral to the founding of UAH. But what is less well known is that Dr. Von Braun didn't just want the university to be a bastion of research and engineering. He also wanted it to be a center of cultural enrichment, where students could engage in both science and the arts.
"Education," he said in a 1961 speech, "must prevent people from becoming robots, and young people must acquire the moral and spiritual values adequate to decide wisely the uses which should be made of new knowledge with their minds not fashioned to function as computers, but with heart and soul."
