The Albuquerque Journal reports an active-duty CIA intelligence officer will be embedded on the University of New Mexico's campus. Under an agreement with the school, the officer will carry a teaching or research load comparable to his faculty colleagues.

In addition, the officer will participate, if possible, in the academic life of the university just like other professors.

CIA spokeswoman Chelsea Robinson says the officer will teach at the school beginning this fall as part of the agency's Visiting Intelligence Officers Program.

According to copies of two Memoranda of Understanding agreements between the university and the CIA, University of New Mexico president Garnett Stokes recently decided to keep the school involved in a CIA recruiting program.
