CIA Director Gina Haspel set to address audience at Auburn University

Auburn University announced that it will host Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Director Gina Haspel on April 18 for a National Security Forum.

The Thursday morning event, which will be held at The Hotel at Auburn University and Dixon Conference Center, will be accessible by invitation only and is set to begin at 9 a.m. CST.

Haspel is set to address the audience, which will be followed by a moderated question and answer session.

Auburn University Chief Operating Officer and former Defense Intelligence Agency Director Lt. Gen. Ronald L. Burgess will moderate the event. Burgess returned to Auburn, his undergraduate alma mater, in December 2012 after retiring from the Army after a 38-year military career.

Haspel, who was nominated by President Trump to lead the CIA, was officially sworn in as Director of the Central Intelligence Agency on May 18, 2018. Haspel manages the agency’s intelligence collection, analysis and covert action, counterintelligence and liaison relationships with foreign services.
