Former CIA Director Brennan Becomes Fellow at Fordham Law School

by Associated Press

NEW YORK — The former director of the CIA has been named a fellow at the Fordham University School of Law’s Center on National Security.

John Brennan, who led the agency from 2013 until January of this year, took the new position Tuesday. The New York Times reports he has been named a distinguished fellow for global security and will participate in the Center on National Security’s programs.

Brennan says he also will mentor students at Fordham University who are interested in government service and national security. He graduated from the school in 1977, earning a degree in political science.

Karen Greenberg, the founding director of the center, says Brennan will be the first fellow with the title of distinguished fellow.
