Brown-bag series kicks off with DIA briefing

The first presentation of the InterAgency Brown-Bag Lecture Series for CGSC academic year 2021 was conducted Oct. 6, 2020, in Marshall Auditorium in the Lewis and Clark Center on Fort Leavenworth. Mr. Roderic C. Jackson, the Defense Intelligence Chair and Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) Representative to the Combined Arms Center and Army University, led a discussion about the Defense Intelligence Agency, which is one of our nation’s least understood intelligence organizations.

CGSC Foundation President/CEO Rod Cox provided the introduction.

Roderic C. Jackson has more than 30 years of experience in national security affairs with long-term interest in African security. He has served with the DIA more than 16 years as a military and civilian employee. Among his numerous assignments and deployments, Jackson has worked as a Defense Attaché and as a policy advisor to leaders at U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM), U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM), and U.S. European Command (EUCOM). 

The InterAgency Brown-Bag Lecture Series is co-hosted by the CGSC Foundation’s Simons Center with the U.S. Army Command and General Staff School (CGSS). The series is an extracurricular, interagency topic-focused series that is intended to help enrich the CGSS curriculum. The presentations are scheduled each month.
