Harvard Kennedy School’s Institute of Politics (IOP) has announced that Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, co-hosts of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” will serve as Visiting Fellows this summer and fall.

“For several years, ‘Morning Joe’ has been at the forefront of covering millennials in politics, and at Harvard they will engage directly with the young people who will reconnect America and serve as future political leaders,” said Congressman Bill Delahunt, Interim Director of the Institute of Politics.

Scarborough and Brzezinski will begin their fellowship appointments with a Washington, D.C. event with the IOP students and alumni in the Summer in Washington program. This fall, they will travel to Harvard to participate in campus events with students.

Since 1966, the IOP Fellows Program has brought professionals in politics and public service to Harvard to share their experiences with students and the Harvard community and explore the most pressing public issues of the day. Former fellows include senators, governors, journalists and foreign leaders.
