U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson visited Kansas State to deliver the 167th Landon Lecture the morning of May 27, 2015, in Forum Hall in the K-State Student Union. Johnson spoke about the “new reality” of global terrorism, focusing on how terrorism has grown less centralized as “homegrown” terrorists not associated with, but inspired by, groups such as Al-Qaeda have come into the forefront. Johnson also explained some of the strategies the Deparment of Homeland Security is pursuing to combat the threat, cautioning that the department must operate in a delicate balance between personal freedoms and national security. That afternoon following the Lecture, Johnson joined other Kansas dignitaries in breaking ground for the National Bio and Agro-Defense facility in a special ceremony to which the Collegian was not invited.
