Time at PHC: 2005 to present
Dr. Middleton became the Director of the Strategic Intelligence Program at Patrick Henry College in July 2005. In addition to focusing the program toward becoming one of the leading academic centers of excellence in intelligence, he has developed a vision and strategic plan for PHC’s Strategic Intelligence Program that includes significant student opportunities for hands-on analytic experience and development of products for direct use by US intelligence and law enforcement organizations. These efforts and the active engagement of PHC students in these activities have attracted the attention of the office of the Director of National Intelligence, multiple agencies within the US Intelligence Community, and regional law enforcement organizations. As a result, PHC graduates have had excellent success in obtaining post-graduate employment and are already filling positions of responsibility within the US Intelligence Community.
Dr. Middleton is a retired Air Force Colonel who has over 40 years experience in national security, advanced technology, research and development, and the intelligence business. He has held senior positions at multiple government agencies as government staff and as an industry consultant.
Dr. Middleton also teaches upper-level PHC courses on US Intelligence History and on Intelligence Research and Analysis Methods. In addition, he coaches the PHC Women's Sentinels basketball team.
