Former CIA Director David Petraeus will be a visiting professor for public policy at Macauley Honors College at City University of New York beginning Aug. 1, the Associated Press reported.

The retired four-star general has a Ph.D. from Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Policy. The former commander of coalition forces in Iraq and Afghanistan has also written on international relations, military strategy and tactics and national security issues, according to the AP. 

Patraeus resigned from the CIA in November after it was revealed he’d had an affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell. 

In a statement released by the school, Petraeus said, “Sixty percent of Macaulay students are the children of immigrants or immigrants themselves, and as the son of an immigrant who settled north of New York City, I identify with them and applaud their achievements in earning a place in CUNY’s honors college.”
