1 min read

Harvard’s Institute of Politics (IOP), located at the Harvard Kennedy School, announced the spring visiting fellowship of Bill Richardson, governor of New Mexico (2003-11), U.S. secretary of energy (1998-2001), U.S. ambassador to the United Nations (1997-98), and U.S. representative (D-NM; 1983-97).

Richardson’s fellowship will occur the week of March 28.  On March 31, Richardson will speak in the John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum and deliver the 2011 Corliss Lamont Lecture, a lectureship featuring an individual widely recognized for leadership in diminishing the risk of nuclear war.  Visiting fellows traditionally meet with student groups, lead discussion groups on topical issues and their experiences in public and political service, and participate in public policy classes with students and Harvard University faculty.
