For all Air University stakeholders: The Air University solicits research topics on issues important to your organization, the Air Force, and U.S. national security. These topics will help shape Air University's (AU) research agenda and become the research focus for many of our students in meeting their graduation requirements. As you know, research hones our students' critical analysis, cross-cultural communications, and leadership skills.

As the Intellectual and Leadership Center of the Air Force, our goal continues to be serving as the premier source of research excellence regarding airpower in the air, space, and cyberspace domains. We are grateful for your help in keeping the research we conduct here at AU focused on important forward-thinking issues. We accept topic submissions at any time during the year, and the AU Strategic Issues List (topic list) will be frequently updated as inputs come in, and is always available for faculty or student reference. Please know that the students pick their topics early in their academic year, so to have the best chance for AU engagement, you should try to make your submissions by mid-June in order to enable our academic institutions to integrate them into their research programs.

The data you provide will allow AU to document topics, facilitate customer-researcher interaction, and provide your team with the relevant research product meet your needs. This year, to make the process easier for your staff, we have developed a method that allows your organization to input your topics through our website using an electronic submission form. If your organization has questions about online submission, please contact the Air University Integration Cell at

This form has information that is required. Please check all of your inputs before submitting.
