Philip J. "P.J." Crowley, a former U.S. State Department spokesman under Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, will hold a key chair at the Penn State Dickinson School of Law.

The university announced Tuesday his 2011-2012 appointment to the Omar Bradley Chair of Strategic Leadership. The chair is a joint initiative involving the United States Army War College, Dickinson College, the Penn State law school and the university's School of International Affairs.

Its objective, according to a news release, is "to advance the study of strategic leadership and enhance civilian-military dialogue."

The chair does so by giving distinguished people "the opportunity to contribute to the educational and research activities of the partner institutions," the release notes.

Crowley has worked not only for the State Department, but also as a senior fellow with the Center for American Progress, according to Penn State. He is a former special assistant to the president for national security affairs, and a former senior director of public affairs for the National Security Council, which he served during the Clinton administration.

He also is a veteran of the U.S. Air Force.

In his Penn State chair, Crowley's research and teaching will focus in large part on national-security policy, public diplomacy and how media affect conflict, policy and politics, according to the news release.

Its full text is posted via Penn State Live.
