Former Secretary of State George Shultz, who served in the Reagan Administration, visited the class to impart his experiences related to international negotiations.
According to his Hoover Institution biography, Shultz held "two key positions in the Reagan administration: chairman of the President’s Economic Policy Advisory Board (1981–82) and secretary of state (1982–89). As secretary of state, he played a key role in implementing a foreign policy that led to the successful conclusion of the Cold War and the development of strong relationships between the United States and the countries of the Asia-Pacific region including China, Japan, and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations."
He is chairman of the Energy Policy Task Force and a member of the Arctic Security Working Group at Hoover, where he is Thomas W. and Susan B. Ford Distinguished Fellow.
