Retired Four-Star General Comes to Penn State

The Smeal College of Business and the Strategic and Global Security Program will host retired general James Cartwright in the HUB Auditorium on Wednesday at 4:15.

General Cartwright served in the United State Marine Corps and was a four-star general. In 2007, President Bush designated General Cartwright as the new Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Prior to this appointment, he was the Commander of the Strategic Command. In this capacity, he was in charge of the country’s nuclear arsenal. He retired earlier this year after forty years of service.

General Cartwright will deliver a speech about “Strategic Leadership Challenges in the 21st Century.” According to Dr. Darryl Farber, a professor in the Science, Technology, and Society Department and the spokesman for the event, Cartwright will discuss global strategic leadership and its reactions to technological innovation. This includes ensuring that developing technologies will have peaceful and safe utilizations. Cartwright will also discuss how institutions will educate future leaders to adapt to changing technologies.
