MADISON, NJ - Leon Panetta, former member of Congress, Secretary of Defense, White House Chief of Staff and Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, will speak at Drew University at 8 p.m. on April 30.

Panetta joins Drew as the Thomas H. Kean Visiting Lecturer and is expected to discuss an array of topics, including politics, foreign policy, U.S. intelligence, global economic challenges, national security and leadership. His autobiography, Worthy Fights: A Memoir of Leadership in War and Peace, was published last year.

Panetta’s career highlights include repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and reversing the ban on women in combat while secretary of defense, and running the CIA when Osama bin Laden was killed.

Panetta also directed the Office of Management and Budget in the Clinton Administration, was as a professor of public policy at Santa Clara University and served in the U.S. Army.

The Drew Forum, established in 1994, is the region’s leading public lecture venue. Past speakers have included American statesmen, foreign heads of state, nationally known journalists and noted historians.

The Drew Forum lecture series is presented through the generosity of the Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation. The Thomas H. Kean Visiting Lecturer is supported by an endowment created in honor of former New Jersey governor Thomas H. Kean, who was president of Drew University from 1990 to 2005.
