“Goizueta is excited to have Lt. Gen. Keen speak to students and the community about leadership and the work of helping the Haitian people recover from such a horrific natural disaster,” said Larry Benveniste, Dean of Emory University’s Goizueta Business School. “We’re especially honored to host this event on Veterans Day and pay tribute to all the men and women in uniform who have fought – and continue to fight – for noble causes around the globe. This is just another way our school expands its understanding of the world.”

Keen also serves as the Military Deputy Commander of U.S. Southern Command, Miami. He is second-in-command of one of ten unified commands under the Department of Defense. Southern Command conducts military operations and promotes security cooperation throughout the 16 million square mile area of Latin America and the Caribbean.
