Clements Center
Clements Center


The Clements Center creates a network of scholars and practitioners dedicated to history, strategy, and statecraft. It disseminates the program's intellectual capital through public events, conferences, and workshops. 

  • During the fall and spring semesters, the Clements Center hosts a variety of campus talks by scholars and national security policymakers, including a current series on Women in National Security. The Center has been honored to host sitting and former Cabinet members and Ambassadors and several Pulitzer Prize-winning authors. 
  • Each fall, the Clements Center partners with the Strauss Center for International Security and Law to host the Texas National Security Forum, a nationally recognized conference on campus connecting students and the UT community with statesmen and scholars discussing a theme of particular current relevance. The fifth annual 2018 forum "The Return of Great Power Competition" featured four United States Senators and a Special Conversation on Global Threats.
  • Each spring, the Clements Center's Intelligence Studies Project hosts a campus symposium that focuses on an aspect of U.S. Intelligence. The 2018 Symposium, "U.S. Intelligence: Confronting 21st Century Challenges," featured Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats as the keynote speaker, as well as many notable panelists from the intelligence community.
