Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’ Malley has been tapped to be a visiting fellow at Harvard University, and will teach local politics and student engagement.
O’Malley will split his time between Harvard’s Kennedy School Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation, the Bloomberg Harvard City Initiative, and the Taubman Center for State and Local Government.
O’Malley, who ran for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination against Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, told The Harvard Crimson he first visited Harvard to discuss the modernization of city government and encourage students to pursue jobs in local politics when he was mayor of Baltimore.
“I enjoy working with mayors and universities across the country because that’s where the most exciting innovations in governing are actually happening: delivering results, setting goals with deadlines, being open and transparent, doing what works and tackling big challenges,” he told The Crimson’s Alexandra Chaidez.
“That’s why you see cities growing across the country.”
