An Evening with Joe Gibbs - Inaugural Lecture - Robert H. Brooks Lecture Series in Sports Science

Legendary Washington Redskins coach and championship NASCAR team owner Joe Gibbs will present in the inaugural lecture of the Robert H. Brooks Lecture Series in Sports Science on Wednesday, March 7, at 7 p.m. at the Brooks Center for the Performing Arts.

Gibbs will speak about insights gained through 50 years as a leader in American sports. A question-an-answer session will follow.

The lecture series is sponsored the university's Robert H. Brooks Sports Science Institute, committed to the academic study of sports sciences. With the generosity of the late Robert H. Brooks ’60, the institute began in the 1990s with an emphasis on motorsports engineering, sports communication, sports management and sports marketing. Today, this work continues with research and scholarships as well as legacy professors named for Brooks’ son and three colleagues who died in a 1993 plane crash. It is an effort that is growing and evolving with the addition of research seed grants, the lecture series and other initiatives.

The lecture series is free and open to the public.
