NOTRE DAME, Ind. (WNDU) Former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan is joining the University of Notre Dame as a guest lecturer in political science and economics.
He'll join the faculty as a professor of the practice for the 2019-20 academic year.
“The study of political science is strengthened when students hear from people with real-world policy and political experience,” said David Campbell, Packey J. Dee Professor of American Democracy and chair of the Department of Political Science at Notre Dame. “Having former officials in the classroom provides important insights for students — an opportunity to put the theories we study to the test.”
Other recent appointments at Notre Dame include former U.S. Sen. Joe Donnelly and former White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough.
