Crowley to Speak at College of Comm. Lecture

Former State Department official P.J. Crowley (@pjcrowley) will speak at Penn State’s HUB on Tuesday, November 8 at 7:30 p.m. for the College of Communications’s Bronstein Lecture. Crowley now serves as the General Omar N. Bradley Chair in Strategic Leadership. This position allows him to teach courses at the School of International Affairs, the Dickinson School of Law, the U.S. Army War College and Dickinson College.

In 2009, President Barack Obama appointed Crowley to serve as his Assistant Secretary of State of Public Affairs. Earlier this year, Crowley drew criticism from the military after he deplored its treatment of PFC Bradley Manning, who allegedly sent classified documents to Wikileaks. These comments forced Crowley to resign from his position.

The Bronstein Lecture is funded through a gift from Ben Bronstein ’61, a journalism graduate and the founding Director of Public Relations at the Penn State College of Medicine and Hershey Medical Center.
