Support our efforts to educate the public, conduct quality public policy research, and engage students. Since 2003, we have provided opportunities and programs for University of Tennessee students, the East Tennessee community, and visitors from around the globe. Due to the reputation of our namesake, we have attracted illustrious speakers such as Henry Kissinger, Vice President Al Gore, Brent Scowcroft, Sen. Alan Simpson, Sen. George Mitchell, Supreme Court Justice (Ret.) Sandra Day O’Connor, Sec. Arne Duncan, Tom Brokaw and many, many more!
