Meet the GU Politics Fall 2017 Fellows Class


by Mo Elleithee

Dear Friend of GU Politics,

The Institute of Politics and Public Service (GU Politics) at Georgetown’s McCourt School of Public Policy is proud to introduce its Fall 2017 Fellows Class! Here’s who we’re welcoming to the Hilltop:

  • Ron Bonjean (Former Top Spokesman: Speaker of the House & Senate Majority Leader; Partner, ROKK Solutions Public Affairs)
  • Mike Dubke (Former White House Communications Director; Founding Partner of the Black Rock Group; P '21)
  • Marie Harf (Fox News Contributor; Former Senior Advisor to Secretary of State John Kerry)
  • Patrick Murphy (Former two-term Congressman and U.S. Senate candidate from Florida)
  • Liz Sidoti (Head of U.S. Communications for BP; former National Political Editor and Correspondent at the Associated Press)

We're also excited to welcome our first Visiting Fellow to campus this semester. Visiting Fellows are prominent public servants and political practitioners who will spend a shorter or more condensed period of time on campus engaging with the Georgetown community. Like Resident Fellows, they hold discussion groups, host office hours, work with Student Strategy Teams and participate in bigger events during their shorter stay on campus. We feel very lucky to have José Díaz-Balart, Anchor for NBC Nightly News Saturday and Telemundo News, joining us as the inaugural Visiting Fellow, and we'll be sharing more information in the coming weeks about what he'll be doing with us on campus.

It’s going to be a great semester and we know this new Fellows class will be a big part of it! They’re just as excited as we are to host their weekly discussion groups and get to know YOU during their office hours to talk career paths or the latest in political news.

Interested in working alongside our Fellows? Apply to join one of the Student Strategy Teams, where you’ll help with research, campus outreach, and come up with practical ideas to make politics work better. And be sure to mark your calendars for our Meet the Fellows Open House and McCourt School Happy Hour to learn more about their backgrounds, what they have planned for the semester, and ask any questions you might have!

We hope you’ll consider getting involved with GU Politics this year by:

Enjoy the remainder of the summer and stay tuned for announcements about our programming and events for the new year!
