October 30, 2017 — Keough School master’s students recently met with two of the most senior intelligence analysts in the US government: Amy McAuliffe (far right) and Suzanne Fry (far left). McAuliffe and Fry, both Notre Dame graduates, spoke about the role of intelligence analysis in forming policy.

Master of global affairs student Jasmine Passa (USA) introduced McAuliffe, chair of the National Intelligence Council. Each week, small groups of MGA students are assigned to introduce the invited seminar speaker.

MGA student Djiba Soumaoro (Mali) introduced Fry, director of the Strategic Futures Group for the National Intelligence Council. Students not only introduce policy seminar speakers, but also join them for small group sessions and meals to ask more in-depth questions related to their career and policy interests.

The Keough School’s policy seminar includes all 38 master of global affairs students, who hail from 22 countries.
