Harvard’s Institute of Politics, located at the John F. Kennedy School of Government, announced the selection of an experienced group of individuals for Resident and Visiting Fellowships this spring.
Former Tulsa Mayor Kathy Taylor was among those selected.
Over the course of an academic semester, Resident Fellows interact with students, participate in the intellectual life of the Harvard community and lead weekly study groups on a wide variety of issues.
Visiting Fellows join the Institute for a shorter period and maximize their time meeting with students, faculty and Harvard research center staff. “We are looking forward to welcoming our spring 2012 Fellows to Harvard,” says Harvard’s Institute of Politics Director Trey Grayson. “Their public service experience throughout local, state and federal government and in journalism and international politics should create strong interest among students, faculty and the entire University community.”
Visiting Fellows traditionally meet with student groups; lead discussion groups on topical issues and share their experiences in public and political service; and participate in public policy classes with students and Harvard University faculty.
The Fellows program is central to the Institute’s dual commitment to encourage student interest in public life and to increase interaction between the academic and political communities.
