Eric K. Fanning

Eric K. Fanning, the 22nd secretary of the Army, will visit The Ohio State University this week to discuss how changes in demographics, labor markets, and technologies are forcing the Department of Defense, Army, and other military services to think creatively about attracting the next generation of Americans to a life of public service.

Fanning will share his story, discuss why students, faculty, and small business in the Columbus area could do more to contribute to our nation’s security, and provide recommendations for how they should go about pursuing it.

The conversation will be moderated by Zachary Mears, assistant vice president for national security programs and research at Ohio State.
