The University of Alabama in Huntsville Distinguished Lecture Series was conceived to enhance community collaboration among The University of Alabama in Huntsville, Redstone Arsenal agencies and corporations in Cummings Research Park. One desired outcome is to raise awareness and acquire a better understanding of current events and future trends, and how these activities could be positively influenced through the knowledge and actions among the region’s government, corporate and academic partners.

It is the brainpower of this community - using high levels of knowledge in the critical fields of national defense, the intelligence community, space exploration, and technological development, as well as UAH’s academic disciplines and research prowess, to ensure the future safety and viability of the United States.
