State Department diplomat to discuss opportunities for students on Tuesday

Austin Peay State University is hosting Diplomat in Residence (DIR) for the U.S. State Department Allen DuBose at 2 p.m. Sept. 21 to inform students about employment opportunities within the U.S. government. The program will be conducted as a webinar.

DuBose is the DIR for Tennessee, northern Alabama and northern Georgia. The State Department defines the role of DIR as “Foreign Service officers and specialists located throughout the U.S. who provide guidance and advice on careers, internships and fellowships to students and professionals in the communities they serve.”

Dr. Kevin Baron, a political science professor at Austin Peay, is coordinating the event.

The event will include a 45-minute talk by DuBose about the mission of the state department and a 15-minute Q&A. The hope is to provide more insight into what the State Department does day to day.
