CORRECTION: Former Deputy Secretary of Defense John J. Hamre to give Wheatley Institution lecture Sept. 27

John J. Hamre, president and CEO of the Center for Strategic and International Studies, will speak Thursday, Sept. 27, at 7:30 p.m. in the Gordon B. Hinckley Alumni and Visitors Center Assembly Hall at Brigham Young University for this semester’s Distinguished Lecture in International Affairs.

He will speak on “Present at the Re-Creations of the Trans-Atlantic Community.” Admission is free, and the public is welcome. The lecture is sponsored by BYU’s Wheatley Institution and the Center for the Study of Europe at the David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies.

Hamre became president and CEO of CSIS in 2000. Before joining, he served as the deputy secretary of defense. In 2007 former Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates appointed him to serve as chairman of the Defense Policy Board. Prior to the Department of Defense, Harme worked 10 years on the Senate Armed Services Committee. He also served for six years in the Congressional Budget Office.

Hamre earned a bachelor’s degree from Augustana College, Sioux Falls S.D. He received his doctorate from the School of Advanced International Studies, Johns Hopkins University.

The Wheatley Institution at BYU enhances the reputation and scholarship of BYU by seeking creative and powerful ideas that lead toward practical and constructive solutions to real societal issues.
