Sworn in at the end of May 2013 as a federal employee, McClaurin is the newest faculty member to join FEI, which began in 1968 as the brainchild of President Lyndon B. Johnson.

As an FEI faculty member, McClaurin will focus on leadership and diversity, crisis, and leadership for the next generation.
