NEW YORK, April 24 (UPI) -- Former CIA Director David Petraeus was named visiting professor of public policy at Macauley Honors College at City University of New York, the school said.

The highly decorated four-star general's position will begin Aug. 1, a release from the college said Tuesday.

"CUNY is profoundly honored to welcome Dr. Petraeus to our academic community," CUNY Chancellor Matthew Goldstein said. "With his appointment, our students will have a unique opportunity to learn about public policy firsthand from a distinguished leader with extraordinary experience and expertise in international security issues, intelligence matters and nation building."

"I am very pleased to have an opportunity to work with the talented students at Macaulay Honors College. Sixty percent of Macaulay students are the children of immigrants or immigrants themselves, and as the son of an immigrant who settled north of New York City, I identify with them and applaud their achievements in earning a place in CUNY's honors college," Petraeus said. 

"Beyond that, I look forward to leading a seminar at Macaulay that examines the developments that could position the United States and our North American partners to lead the world out of the current global economic slowdown," he added.

Petraeus resigned as CIA director Nov. 9 after admitting he had engaged in an extramarital affair.
