AU welcomes former FBI Director Robert Mueller

Robert Mueller, former director of the FBI, will visit Anderson University on Wednesday, March 8, to spend time with students in the security studies and political science programs. Mueller will also offer a public address on the evening of March 8.

Anderson University launched a Security Studies program in 2016 with majors in national security studies (a policy-based program) and cybersecurity. One of the hallmarks of the program is students’ access to notable security experts. In 2016, Anderson University brought to campus Alejandro Mayorkas, deputy secretary of homeland security; Chuck Rosenberg, acting administrator for the Drug Enforcement Agency; and Alice Hill, senior director for resiliency on the National Security Council.

Mueller’s public address and time of audience Q&A will take place at 7 p.m. in York Performance Hall on the campus of Anderson University. The event is free.

Mueller served as the director of the FBI from September 2001 to September 2013 and as a career prosecutor in the U.S. Department of Justice. He is currently a partner at WilmerHale, a Washington, D.C., based law firm focusing on investigations, crisis management, privacy, and cybersecurity work.

Anderson University is on a mission to educate students for lives of faith and service, offering more than 60 undergraduate majors, 30 three-year degrees, 20 NCAA Division III intercollegiate sports, alongside adult and graduate programs. The private, liberal arts institution is fully accredited and recognized among top colleges for its business, computer science, cybersecurity, dance, engineering, nursing, and teacher education programs. Anderson University was established in 1917 in Anderson, Indiana, by the Church of God.
