The Elizabeth D. Rockwell Lecture on Ethics and Leadership at the University of Houston was established in 2004. Elizabeth D. Rockwell believed that the university should host important discussions about leadership and ethics for students and the university community.

Speakers are chosen for their ability to discuss ethics and leadership with broad appeal to a diverse body of students, faculty, staff, and community members.
