Writer and television commentator George Will *68 and former CIA director and retired Gen. David Petraeus *85 *87 will be among the speakers at Princeton’s first conference for graduate alumni from all departments, Oct. 17–19. The free conference — Many Minds, Many Stripes — also features sessions on higher education, national affairs, Princeton history, and career development, as well as social gatherings and a conversation with President Eisgruber ’83. 

As of mid-September, about 550 people had registered for the conference, which was intended “to engage as many graduate alumni as possible with Princeton University, with faculty and academic departments, and with each other,” said Debby Corrodi Foster ’92, senior associate director for graduate alumni relations.
