DURHAM — Gen. David H. Petraeus, the former CIA director and four-star Army general, will speak at Duke University next month.
His speech, at Page Auditorium on Sept. 11 at 6 p.m., is free to the public, but tickets are required. Tickets for the public will be available beginning Aug. 27 at 1 p.m. at the Duke Box Office or at www.tickets.duke.edu. There is a $6 fee for online booking.
Petraeus’ 37-year military career was highlighted by his command of coalition forces in both Iraq and Afghanistan. He was director of the CIA for a little over a year before he resigned in scandal, admitting to an extramarital affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell of Charlotte.
A West Point graduate with a doctorate from Princeton University, Petraeus is now chairman of KKR Global Institute and a visiting professor of public policy at the City University of New York’s Macaulay Honors College. He is also a professor at the University of Southern California.
