Former high-ranking government terrorism expert and professor at University of Maryland School of Law, Michael Greenberger ’67 has been named director of the university’s new Center for Health and Homeland Security. President David Ramsay created the CHHS after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, to coordinate and expand health programs, scientific research, policy development, and government consulting done in the six professional schools and graduate school.

As principal deputy associate attorney general at the U.S. Justice Department from 1999 to 2001, Greenberger’s responsibilities included counterterrorism. He worked with Attorney General Janet Reno to develop a nationwide counterterrorism war game in May 2000. The simulation tested the response of Cabinet officials, as well as state and local governments, to biological, chemical, and nuclear terrorist disaster scenarios in three cities.

Greenberger was former director of trading and markets at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and partner in the Washington, D.C., law firm Shea & Gardner. A government and law graduate, he received a J.D. from University of Pennsylvania School of Law.
