General Wesley K. Clark (Ret.), former Supreme Allied Commander, Europe, will deliver the keynote address at a luncheon at 12:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 14, in the Umphrey Lee Ballroom. Reservations are required, and registration begins at noon, with a $35 per person fee for the address. (SMU students, faculty and staff may attend at no charge with SMU IDs.)

The two-day program also will feature military and business leaders, policymakers, analysts and scholars, who will discuss challenges to national security. At a time when security threats have become extraordinarily complex, those challenges include a growing isolationist mood, declining defense budgets and contending approaches to the use of force.
