Washington – National Intelligence University President Dr. David Ellison announced today that retired Marine Corps Gen. John R. Allen will receive an honorary Doctor of Strategic Intelligence degree at the university's July 26 commencement ceremony. This event marks a return to campus for Allen, who earned a Master of Science of Strategic Intelligence degree from the school as a Marine captain in 1984. Allen retired from active duty April 30 following a 37-year Marine Corps career, including his most recent tour as commander of the International Security Assistance Force and U.S. Forces Afghanistan from July 2011 to March 2013.
The commencement is the closing event in the university's 50th anniversary year. Director of National Intelligence James R.
