About the Rockwell Lecture Series
Elizabeth D. Rockwell established the Elizabeth D. Rockwell Lecture on Ethics and Leadership in 2004 with the firm belief that the university should host important discussions about leadership and ethics.
Rockwell, who began her association with the University of Houston in 1938 as a student, continued to support UH as one of its most generous benefactors, up until her death in January 2011. A widely respected expert in retirement, estate, investment and tax planning, Rockwell gained national recognition for her work with IRA rules and regulations. She later became executive director of the Private Client Division of CIBC Oppenheimer Corp., retiring in 2001. As her career spanned decades, she never forgot her UH roots.
