WASHINGTON, D.C. - Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines today issued the following statement on the passing of Former Secretary of State Colin Powell:


“We have lost an extraordinary public servant and American statesman with the passing of Former Secretary of State Colin Powell. A kind, thoughtful, and passionate human being who worked tirelessly to make our world a better place. Secretary Powell served in a variety of critical national security positions, was a decorated veteran, and a champion of national, public, and military service. On behalf of the Intelligence Community, we thank Secretary Powell for his devotion to America and we hope his legacy brings his family comfort in this difficult time."


The National Intelligence University is different than any other university in the country.


There are no sports teams, students do not pay for books or tuition, and the classrooms are in a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility, or SCIF.

PDDNI Stacey Dixon GEOINT 2021 Keynote Address

Good morning: Nancy (Clemens) thank you for the introduction. I appreciate the invitation from both Robert (Cardillo) and Rhonda (Schrenk) to return to GEOINT. The last time we gathered together for the GEOINT symposium was in early June 2019. How the world has changed since then! If you had known then what you know now, how might you have spent this past two years differently? Thankfully, during this time, despite the pandemic, this community has continued to make progress and evolve.
