We announce in this Spring 2017 issue of our newsletter that long-time Belfer Center Director Graham Allison will turn over the reins of the Center in July to former Secretary of Defense Ash Carter and his new Co-Director Eric Rosenbach, both of whom are Center alums. Carter will return to the Kennedy School as the Belfer Professor of Technology and Global Affairs and Allison will remain actively involved at the Center through his teaching, researching, and writing.
Also in this issue, we are very pleased to welcome (and in some cases, welcome back) several high-ranking officials and former representatives who served during the Obama administration. Among those joining the Center following their government service: John P. Holdren (Obama Science Advisor), Ernest Moniz (Secretary of Energy), James Clapper (National Intelligence Director), and Laura Holgate (Ambassador and U.S. Representative to UN-Vienna and IAEA). In addition, we are happy to have as new senior or visiting fellows a number of additional former high-ranking public servants. And we are pleased that several Center and School alumni are serving the nation during the current administration.
And there's much more news from the Belfer Center.
