Dr. Rush D. Holt, Jr. is the current Chief Executive Officer of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and a former congressional member of the U.S. House of Representatives. In his role with AAAS, Holt leads the world’s largest multi-disciplinary scientific and engineering membership organization. On Capitol Hill, Holt established a long track record of advocacy for federal investment in research and development, science education, and innovation. Holt delivered the Evnin Lecture addressing the intersection of science, policy, and public service.
The Evnin Lectures were established with a gift from Anthony B. Evnin '62 to promote a broader and deeper understanding of the critical roles of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in all aspects of human endeavor. Since 1991, the Council on Science and Technology has invited luminaries in the fields of STEM and science communication to explore topics of interest to a broad audience. These lectures are free and open to the public.
