MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) _ A former national security adviser to President Barack Obama is scheduled to give a Landon Lecture at Kansas State University.

Thomas Donilon will speak April 15 at the Manhattan campus. It's the second lecture of the year in the series named for former Kansas Gov. Alf Landon.

Donilon headed the National Security Council until resigning in June 2013. During his tenure he was involved in the administration's counterterrorism strategy, including the 2012 raid on a compound in Pakistan that led to the death of Osama bin Laden.

He also worked in the administrations of Presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton in various diplomatic and security capacities.
