    The Evolution of a U.S. Ambassador: Policy and Perspective in a Global Age

    The John O’Sullivan Memorial Lecture Series

    "The Evolution of a U.S. Ambassador: Policy and Perspective in a Global Age"

    Ambassador Robert Skipp Orr
    U.S. Executive Director to the Asian Development Bank

    Orr graduated from Florida Atlantic University in 1976 with a bachelor's degree in history. He subsequently earned a master's degree in government from Georgetown University, and his doctorate in political science from Tokyo University. He was a congressional staffer in Washington D.C. from 1976 to 1981, and was then appointed to the U.S. Agency for International Development. Orr was president of Boeing Japan and vice president of Motorola's European Affairs Division. In 2010, President Obama named Orr executive director of the Manila-based Asian Development Bank, with the rank of ambassador.

    Orr will discuss his evolution from congressional staffer to ambassador of the Asian Development Bank in Manila, and the effect that these experiences have had in helping to formulate America's foreign policy in Asia from 2010 to now.
