A formal presentation will run from 6 to 7:30 p.m. followed by networking from 7:30 to 8:30. Both the FBI and CIA are seeking to increase diversity within the organizations and find specifically skilled applicants to fulfill critical roles within the agencies. Those at the event will hear about specific job positions and qualifications through a panel discussion as well as the agencies’ similarities, strategic differences and shared commitment to thwart threats to national security. Dinner will be provided, but seating is limited. RSVP by July 12 to Christina Petrosian at chrissp@ucia.gov.”

The head of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Jeh Johnson, spoke at the University of Michigan-Dearborn to student leaders and later addressed a larger crowd including of student and law enforcement, according to Detroit Free Press.

"We find ourselves in a new phase in the global terrorist threat, which requires a new ... type of response," Johnson told the audience. "If you see something, say something," he said. "We want public awareness, public vigilance."

Johnson later spoke to reporters, saying "We must not vilify Muslim-Americans," and that "The very essence of the Islamic faith is peace."
