General David Petraeus, the disgraced former director of the CIA, is going back to school. Next school year, he'll serve as a visiting professor of the City University of New York, the school announced on Tuesday.
Petraeus resigned from the CIA last November after admitting he had an extramarital affair with his biographer.
According to his lawyer, Robert Barnett, Petraeus was approached by several colleges, but chose CUNY because of its diversity, location and other offerings. Petraeus will be the new visiting professor of public policy at CUNY's Macaulay Honors College.
In a statement, Petraeus said he's looking forward to heading a class "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."
