MADISON, Wisconsin (WXOW) – Former Governor Jim Doyle (D, Wisconsin) will be joining Harvard University's Institute of Politics this fall as a resident fellow.
Doyle said he will lead a weekly student study group there, which will focus on electoral politics.
The former Governor will also spend time speaking with students about political topics that interest them – such as campaigning, governing and the current political climate across the country.
"There's a real desire by students to know what it's really like," Doyle said, "there are just a lot of students that were interested in how does it really work in the real world of politics?"
"I hope that's something I can bring after 20 years of statewide office in Wisconsin and 7 statewide campaigns," he added.
"It's a bit of a homecoming, because I went to law school there," Doyle said. "So to go back, I'm looking forward to being a part of it. There are some very interesting people there. It's going to be a good semester."
Since he left the Governor's office in 2011, Doyle said he has been working at a Madison law firm, and also remained active in several of the country's biggest healthcare foundations and advocacy groups.
Doyle said he plans to stay involved with all that while at Harvard.
