 Debate on the CIA and Academe

Article from FP today...


Two disgraced university leaders. One stunning connection. Over the last month, we've seen Penn State University President Graham Spanier dismissed from his duties and we've seen UC Davis Chancellor Linda Katehi pushed to the brink of resignation. Spanier was jettisoned because of what appears to be a systematic cover-up of assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky's serial child rape. Katehi has faced calls to resign after the she sent campus police to blast pepper spray in the faces of her peaceably assembled students

The names Spanier and Katehi are now synonymous with the worst abuses of institutional power. But their connection didn't begin there. In 2010, Spanier chose Katehi to join an elite team of twenty college presidents on what's called the National Security Higher Education Advisory Board, which "promotes discussion and outreach between research universities and the FBI."

Spanier said upon the group's founding in 2005, "The National Security Higher Education Advisory Board promises to help universities and government work toward a balanced and rational approach that will allow scientific research and education to progress and our nation to remain safe." He also said that the partnership could help provide "internships" to faculty and students interested in "National Security issues."


Another Member of the National Security Higher Education Advisory Board is Michael Crow, President of ASU

Originally named "Peleus" and renamed after the above-mentioned "007" series character, In-Q-Tel was formed in 1999 to help the CIA keep pace with the rapid technological advances of the private sector, an increasingly daunting task.

Under his direction ASU has initiated a dramatic research infrastructure expansion to create more than one million square feet of new research space and has announced naming gifts endowing the W. P.
