Harvard University’s Institute of Politics (IOP), located at the Kennedy School of Government, recently announced the selection of a diverse and experienced group of individuals for fellowships this fall.
The following resident fellows will join the institute for the fall semester and lead weekly, not-for-credit study groups on a range of political topics. Study group information will be released later this summer.
The resident fellows for fall 2005 are as follows:
Lisa Davis, senior adviser to the CCO, Integrated Communications, AARP, and a former top communications counsel for the Clinton-Gore ’96 re-election campaign
Martin Frost, former U.S. representative (D-Texas)
Joe Gaylord, veteran Republican political consultant and strategist
Benjamin Ginsberg, partner, Patton Boggs LLP, and former national counsel, Bush-Cheney ’00 and ’04 presidential campaigns
Bob Graham, former governor of Florida and U.S. senator (D-Fla.)
Cheryl Jacques, former president and executive director, Human Rights Campaign
Adam Nagourney, chief political correspondent, New York Times.
In addition to his fall fellowship with the IOP, former governor of Florida and U.S. Senator Bob Graham will also serve as a fellow for the spring 2006 semester with the Kennedy School’s Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs.
“The Institute of Politics is excited to bring this diverse group of practitioners to Harvard, whose experience and enthusiasm for politics, public service, and civic engagement will help inspire both students and our community,” said Jeanne Shaheen, director of the IOP.
Fellows will interact with students, participate in the intellectual life of the community, and pursue individual studies or projects. The fellows program is central to the institute’s dual commitment to encourage student interest in public life and to increase information sharing between the academic and political communities.
