CPU Event: An Open Discussion with Former Ambassador to Afghanistan Karl Eikenberry

Ambassador Eikenberry in action

You’ve enjoyed Bacchanal and took advantage of the Spring weather, but now there’s another type of Spring to turn your attention to: The Arab Spring. Join Karl Eikenberry, the current Frank E. and Arthur W. Payne Distinguished Lecturer at Stanford University’s Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies and former Commander of Combined Forces in and U.S. Ambassador to Afghanistan for an open discussion on Afghanistan and related issues.

Not familiar with anyone on the panel? Well, just take the word of CPU GM Emily Tampkin, who says “from the state of U.S. relations to Afghanistan and the Afghan government to the potential for a regional oil pipeline deal that could bring peace and stability to the region, there are few more knowledgeable voices on policy in the area than former Ambassador Eikenberry.” That’s right, Eikenberry has got the Tamkin Bump, so you know it will be an exciting evening filled with intriguing conversation.

It’s all going down this Monday at 5 pm (that’s TODAY) in the Wein Hall Lounge. Do it up, Cub Pubbers!
