Cameron Munter, a former US Ambassador to both Pakistan and Serbia, will join the Pomona College faculty as a visiting professor of international relations for a 3-year term, beginning in January 2013. This spring, he will teach the course, “Managing International Crisis.”
A retired career diplomat, Mr. Munter served as America’s ambassador to Pakistan from October 2010 until July 2012, leading a 2000-employee embassy while guiding US-Pakistan relations through a period of severe crisis, including the capture of Osama bin Laden and the latest phase of the Afghan war.
He was also a director at the National Security Council under Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, executive assistant to the counselor of the State Department, and chief of staff of the NATO Enlargement Ratification Office at the State Department, in addition to serving other diplomatic assignments in Washington and overseas.
Mr. Munter, who ran track as a student at Claremont High School, received his doctoral degree in modern European history from the Johns Hopkins University and his bachelor’s in German area studies from Cornell University. His parents, Leonard and Helen-Jeanne Munter, are still quite active in Claremont.
