Highest Ranking Military Commander in Hampton Roads Visits ODU

Highest Ranking Military Commander in Hampton Roads Visits ODU

Old Dominion President Roseann Runte recently hosted Gen. James N. Mattis, U.S. Marine Corps, on a working visit of the campus. Mattis, who serves as commander of both Joint Forces Command and Supreme Allied Commander-Transformation, is the senior military commander in Hampton Roads.

Runte and Mattis discussed a wide range of research and academic topics, within the context of a 1995 Memorandum of Agreement that formally linked the university with NATO's Atlantic Headquarters.

Gen. Mattis will return to ODU later this month to co-host, with President Runte, the annual ODU/ACT Azalea Festival Symposium at the Ted Constant Convocation Center and the Virginia Modeling, Analysis and Simulation Center.
