Directors' Seminar Series

Sig Hecker

The Directors' Seminars showcase Stanford faculty and researchers, as well as policy makers and visiting scholars from all over the country. Speakers typically cover general topics on international security and present the policy implications of their research or their years of experience in government. Directors' Seminars are free and usually open to the public. They are held on certain Tuesdays, from 12:00 – 1:30 PM in the CISAC Central Conference Room, Encina Hall, 2nd floor, but are occasionally offered on different days of the week or at different times. At speaker’s request, some events may be by invitation only.
