Jeffrey Evans, interim associate dean for undergraduate programs and director of learning innovation in the Purdue Polytechnic Institute, attended the 63rd annual National Security Forum at the Air War College, Maxwell Air Force Base, Alabama, at the personal invitation of the secretary of the Air Force. The National Security Forum exposes influential citizens to senior U.S. and international officers and civilian equivalents in order to engage each other’s ideas and perspectives on Air Force, national and international security issues.
Evans was one of 160 civilian leaders in business, education and government from across the country who met May 3-5 with senior military leaders to explore current and future national security issues facing the nation. The leaders participated in an open and candid exchange of ideas with senior military and civilian leaders and Air War College students.
