Get to Know a Speaker: P.J. Crowley

Philip J. (PJ) Crowley is the 2011-2012 Omar Bradley Chair of Strategic Leadership. The chair is a joint effort among the United States Army War College, Dickinson College, and Penn State Law to advance the study of strategic leadership and enhance civilian-military dialogue by offering distinguished individuals the opportunity to contribute to the educational and research activities of the three institutions. 

President Barack Obama nominated Crowley to be Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs in the U.S. Department of State in 2009. Previously, he served as Special Assistant to the President for national security affairs and Senior Director of Public Affairs for the National Security Council during the Clinton Administration. Before joining the Department of State, Crowley was a senior fellow with the Center for American Progress, with a particular policy focus on homeland security and combating terrorism. Crowley’s research and teaching interests focus on national security policy, public diplomacy, and the impact of the global media environment on conflict, policy, and politics. His appointment also enables him to teach at Penn State's School of International Affairs as well as Dickinson College and the U.S. Army War College.
