Retired Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the former International Security Assistance Force commander in Afghanistan, will teach a class on leadership at Yale University this fall.

McCrystal recently resigned after Rolling Stones magazine published  an interview in which he criticized White House policies. Ruling out working with a government contractor for now, he has decided to teach instead.

The course, titled “Leadership in Operation,” will be offered to graduate students at Yale’s Jackson Institute for Global Affairs and will cover a diverse range of topics such as the Media Environment, Navigating Politics and more, according to the Yale Daily News, who published the syllabus.

McChrystal will also use some autobiographical material in the class, including the decision to invade Iraq.

James Levinsohn, director of the Jackson Institute for Global Affairs, remarked that “General McChrystal brings a wealth of experience in international affairs that will be of tremendous value to our students. His leadership seminar exemplifies just what the Jackson Institute is all about – integrating outstanding practitioners right into the academic curriculum.”

According to Yale, the seminars are all off the record.
