Reince Priebus Selected as Visiting Fellow at Harvard Kennedy School

Washington, D.C. (April 17, 2018) – Michael Best is pleased to announce that President & Chairman Reince Priebus will be a Visiting Fellow at The Institute of Politics at Harvard Kennedy School this spring.

“We are pleased to welcome Reince Priebus to campus as a Visiting Fellow during the spring semester. His experience and insight from years in politics, from the local to national level, as well as his time as Chief of Staff to President Trump, will be of great interest to our community,” said IOP Director Mark D. Gearan.

The Visiting Fellows program brings citizens who have served in influential positions in public life to campus for a limited, yet comprehensive number of events. The program is designed to provide short-term engagement with the Harvard community, particularly students. Priebus’ fellowship will begin on April 23rd and run through April 25th.

“I’m honored to be among the group selected as visiting fellows, and I’m looking forward to connecting with the Harvard students and staff,” said Priebus. “This program is an excellent way to facilitate unique dialogue, opportunities, and insight.”

“The Institute of Politics has a long tradition of inviting individuals of varied backgrounds, experiences, and political beliefs to participate in a thoughtful and productive dialogue on Harvard’s campus. Not only will Mr. Priebus engage in the most relevant political conversations of today, he will also provide valuable guidance and advice to students," said Fellows program student co-chairs Abby Bloomfield ‘20 and Shreeya Panigrahi ’19.
