Bennett staffer to discuss international careers at BYU lecture April 5

Mark Morrison, deputy chief of staff to Utah Sen. Robert F. Bennett, is slated to present a Middle Eastern Studies/Arabic Lecture Thursday, April 5, at 4 p.m. in 238 Herald R. Clark Building at Brigham Young University.

Admission is free, and the public is welcome.

Morrison’s topic, “Intelligence, Military and Congress: How to Apply IR and Middle East Studies,” will discuss career opportunities for students pursuing those majors.

Morrison’s service with Bennett began in 2003 when he was appointed legislative director and military legislative assistant. His current duties as deputy chief of staff include overseeing all legislative activity and discussing military, intelligence and foreign policy issues.

A retired lieutenant colonel from the U.S. Air Force, his military assignments included three years in Germany in a NATO analytic position; two years as a Middle East area specialist under the Air Force chief of staff; and three years as an intelligence analyst in the White House. Morrison also served for 13 years as director of legislative affairs for Lockheed Martin Corporation, where he focused on legislative strategies on missile defense and satellite and offensive missile programs.

Morrison is a graduate of BYU, Troy State University and the Naval Postgraduate School.

This lecture will be archived online. For more information on David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies events, see the calendar online at kennedy.byu.edu.
