Ambassador Susan Rice joins School of International Service
Rice to serve as distinguished visiting research fellow
Ambassador Susan Elizabeth Rice is now a member of AU faculty as a Distinguished Visiting Research Fellow, the University announced on March 8. She will serve as a mentor in the School of International Service on careers in national security. Rice will also spend time writing a new book while at AU.
Rice spent four years as an ambassador to the United Nations before she joined President Obama’s administration as the National Security Advisor in 2013. Her role was to provide the president with all of the foreign and national security policy, intelligence and military affairs.
“I am very pleased to become a part of SIS and the AU family,” Rice said in the announcement. “I look forward to joining this distinguished community.”
School of International Service dean James Goldgeier said he welcomes ambassador Rice to the AU community.
“We are looking forward to students interacting with her and to gain insights from her about pursuing careers in national security,” Goldgeier said.
Goldgeier said students will have the opportunity to work with Rice on research for their studies, specifically work focused on national security matters.
