Richard Grenell, the former United States Ambassador to Germany and former acting director of national intelligence (DNI), has joined Carnegie Mellon University’s Institute for Politics and Strategy as a Senior Fellow.

Grenell brings a decade of experience in diplomacy and international relations to Carnegie Mellon, where he will engage with students and faculty. He spent eight years as the United States spokesman at the United Nations before assuming the role of U.S. Ambassador to Germany.

“The offices of the Institute for Politics and Strategy in Pittsburgh and Washington, DC have a proven track record for convening leaders throughout the world for research, teaching, and discussion on some of the most pressing global problems,” Grenell said. “It is an honor to join Professor Kiron Skinner and her IPS colleagues to help develop projects concentrating on the new Europe and the global campaign to decriminalize homosexuality.”
