REPORT: Hillary Clinton considering Harvard University job offer
Clinton is considering a job offer from Harvard University.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is considering a job offer from Harvard University, according to her spokesperson.
The school’s student publication, reported late last week that administrators had approached Clinton with several opportunities for "engaging the university."
"We have extended an invitation to Secretary Clinton to consider engaging with the university and would of course welcome her interest in a range of roles," Kennedy School spokesperson Doug Gavel wrote in an email to The Crimson.
Clinton is considering that offer, along with other offers from other schools around the nation including Baruch College and New York University, both based in New York City, according to Politico.
“A number of academic institutions have reached out with ideas," said Clinton spokesman, Nick Merrill. "We’re following up with each to discuss them.”
In the same article, a spokesperson for Baruch College confirmed the school had spoken with Clinton about a “range of options.”
Reactions among Harvard faculty, meanwhile have been mostly positive although some have worried about the ramifications of bringing in a well-known, but sometimes polarizing political figure.
"It would be fabulous for our students, as long as they weren’t anti-Democratic or Republican,” Kennedy School professor Barbara Kellerman told the Boston Herald.
Harvard University did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
