From a list of about 40 college and university presidents, I have recommended an initial group of thirteen. Some of the reasons for STATINTL selecting them are set forth in the memorandum.

Purposes of Visit: Though students and faculty on campuses across the country are less critical of the US government and foreign policy than they were a few years ago, CIA continues to be amajor bete noire in academia. The persecution of and guidelines governing relations with CIA issued by Harvard and under consideration at other schools illustrate how strong anti-Agency feeling still is. Gross misunderstandings of the Agency's mission and activities are at the root of most of our problems on campus, and many are based strictly on conjecture or on cases ten or more years old. Even the well informed and sophisticated drafters of the Harvard guidelines believed that the Agency is still involved in activities that were discontinued years ago. A modest but promising means of dispelling some of the myths and misunderstandings about CIA is to invite a distinguished group of university presidents to the Agency for VIP briefings and tours. A main objective should be to explain on the record what types of rela- tionships CIA has on campus and why they are important. Particular emphasis should be placed on our research and analytical efforts and on the extensive academic contacts that assist them. Agency spokesmen should make clear in addition that CIA does many of the things it is accused of: we do not use American citizens (academic or other- wise) unwittingly; we do not use colleges or universities for cover purposes; we do not conceal contractual research relationships from appropriate university officials, etc. Thus, the primary purpose of the proposed visit would the area of image building and rectifi- cation. Another important purpose would be to improve channels of communication between CIA and leading academic centers.

All of the universities on the initial list proposed below have pres- tigious foreign area and other specialized research centers (see Attachment A for a list) where analysis often complements or supple- ments our own. Contacts between these centers and Agency analytical components now consist almost entirely of individual relationships. We should attempt to broaden them and to establish enduring institu- tional ties with many of the research centers in order to promote cooperative research. 2. Time and Place of Visit: The first visit should be held for STATINTL the better part of two days during the month of October. Most sessions should be conducted at the Headquarters building with special presen- STATINTL tations perhaps at Alternatively, the visiting presi- dents could be flown to late in the afternoon. of the first day and spend the night there with an evening program. Additional STATINTL sessions could then be held on the second day at Headquarters and/or 3. A enda: It is recommended that the university presidents be granted special Secret clearances for the visit and that they be briefed candidly on a wide spectrum of Agency activities. Presenta- tion. by would appear to be essential elements in the pro- gram, because of widespread concern in academia--most recently evident in the Harvard guidelines--with CIA "spying" on campus. Representa- tives of the two DDO divisions should describe the mission and oper- ating procedures of their components with an eye toward assuaging apprehensions about improper CIA activities in the US. Presentations about photographic collection and analysis would be a key ingredient and most likely ought to be allocated a large time block on the program. The DDI's numerous analytical programs should also be a major element of the program. Special and innovative research efforts and other resource analysis, strategic research and verifi- cation, personality and behavorial studies? eta:) should be included. An effort should be made to formulate an individual presentation for each president that would concentrate on an analytical area of partic- ular interest to him. Although our primary purposes in hosting a visit by univer- sity presidents are in the area of image building and improving con- tacts, our scheduling and presentations should scrupulously avoid the appearances of a high-pitched public relations campaign. If such an Approved For Rele I2U MM7WEETA1 4 ?M8 0 0300140020-3 ADMINISTRATIVE-INTERNAT. USE ONLY Approved For Re1We 2001/12/05 : CIA-RDP86B00985ROQ0300140020-3 impression predominated, our efforts might well be counterproductive. One means of helping to avoid the appearances of a rigidly controlled visit is to schedule separate, informal sessions for each president with a group of alumni from his university drawn from throughout the Agency. The agendas for these meetings should be left open for spon- taneous and candid exchanges without the presence of senior Agency officials. 4. Proposed Invitees: The following thirteen presidents (see Attachment B for Who's Who in America bio sketches) of leading American universities are recommended for the initial visit: Peter Magrath Norman Hackerman Martin D. Woodin John W. Oswald Theodore Hesburgh Robert Sproull John Hogness Henry K. Stanford David Saxon Clifton Wharton Frederick Davison Jerome Wiesner Dallin H. Oaks University of Minnesota Rice University Louisiana State University Pennsylvania State University Notre Dame University University of Rochester University of Washington University of Miami University of California Michigan State University at East Lansing University of Georgia Massachusetts Institute of Technology Brigham Young University Each was recommended b and is considered likely to be receptive to an invitation from A mira Turner for a visit to CIA. believe that all are generally favorable toward CIA. They were drawn from a much larger list of presidents who would be candidates for additional visits if the first one is successful. The thirteen were chosen from the larger list for a variety of reasons. All major regions of the country are represented about equally. Public and private institutions are included, with somewhat more in the former category. Two relrigiously affiliated institutions are included. Enrollments vary from under 3,000 at Rice to more than 85,000 in the California university system. Protocol and compatability have been considered. It would .be inappropriate, for instance, to invite the chancellors of the Berkeley or Los Angeles campuses of the University of California or the New Orleans campus of LSU without first inviting the head of the entire university system. It would also be inadvisable to invite -3- Approved For Relea?gQJMqJ*g ADMINISTRATIVE-INTERNAL USE ONLY Approved For Release 2001/12/05: CIA-RDP86B00985R00Q 00140020-3 presidents of institutions of substantially different levels of ,prestige. All of those on the initial list are from prestigious, highly respected universities regardless of their size or location. We should not plan on all thirteen accepting our first invitation. The ideal size for such a visit, in fact, most likely would be five or six presidents. Having any more than that would tend to undermine the VIP nature of the visit and give the appearances of shabby public relations. It is recommended that invitations be sent at the outset to eight or nine of the individuals on the list with the expectation that at least a few will be unable to accept. Addi- tional invitations from the initial list could be sent as soon as enough regrets are received. Additional visits could be scheduled for as often as every other month for a year or two. At-the rate of six university presidents six times a year, more than 100 of the leading universities and colleges could be reached within three years.
