Former CIA acting director and deputy director Michael Morell has been named a Senior Fellow at the Schar School of Policy and Government at George Mason University.
Morrell will provide guest lectures in classes across the Schar School’s graduate and undergraduate programs. In addition, he will join the Schar School’s Michael V. Hayden Center for Intelligence, Policy, and International Security as the namesake’s founder, former CIA and NSA director Michael Hayden, recovers from his recent stroke.
Morell’s 33-year career in national intelligence, serving under every president since Ronald Reagan, included three years as CIA deputy director, during which he twice served as acting director. His 2015 book, “The Great War of Our Time: The CIA’s Fight Against Terrorism—from al Qa’ida to ISIS,” was a New York Times bestseller.
Morrell is now senior counselor at strategic advisory firm Beacon Global Strategies and is an on-air contributor in intelligence and national security to CBS News. He also has served as a senior fellow at Harvard University’s Kennedy School, a resident fellow at the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics, and a senior fellow at the Combatting Terrorism Center at West Point.
