PKI Distinguished Lecture Series 2015 Announced

The PKI Distinguished Lecture Series continues this semester with Ms. Priscilla Guthrie, the former chief information officer of the Office of the Director for National Intelligence. The event will be held on April 2nd, 2015 at PKI.

The Peter Kiewit Institute (PKI) introduced its inaugural Distinguished Lecture Series during the 2009/2010 academic year. The lecture series is designed to expose student-scholars to prominent leaders from government, industry, academia and athletics. While serving as a key component of the PKI Leadership Development Program, primary invitees are Scott Scholars and select staff from the Peter Kiewit Institute. This year, PKI has also graciously invited Scott Scholar Alumni to attend.

Prior to her work at the Office of the Director for National Intelligence, Ms. Guthrie also worked as the director of the information technology and systems division of the Institute for Defense Analyses, a non-profit corporation that administers three federally funded research and development centers to provide objective analyses of national security issues. From 2001 to 2006, Guthrie was the Defense Department’s deputy assistant secretary for networks and information integration and deputy chief information officer.

Ms. Guthrie will share her experiences of personal growth while passing along life’s lessons. This is also a great opportunity for our alumni to visit with the current PKI staff and Scott Scholar students.

The agenda is still being finalized but has typically been in the late afternoon. If you would like to RSVP or receive more information, please email Eric Gitt at
