Adair Lecture,
Continued from page 61
to diplomats what courage is
to soldiers.”
Amb. Freeman was joined
on stage by AFSA President
Susan Johnson, former AFSA
President Marshall Adair,
American University School
of International Service Dean
James Goldgeier and School
of Professional and Expanded
Studies Dean Carola Weil.
Marshall Adair noted,
“These lectures are intended
to expose students to
individuals who actually
practice diplomacy—to add
the operational perspective
to their university’s aca-
demic perspective. They are
intended to challenge the
students to get the most out
of their university’s curricula,
and to inspire them to future
public service, perhaps with
the Foreign Service.”
