Gov. Rick Snyder (R) Michigan

Former Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder is headed to Harvard University to teach, study and write on subjects related to state and local government.

Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government announced that Snyder begins work Monday as a senior research fellow. His fellowship is with the school’s Taubman Center for State and Local Government.

 

Center Director Jeffrey Liebman says in a statement the former Republican governor, who served two terms starting in 2011, brings “expertise in management, public policy and promoting civility.” Snyder says he looks forward to sharing his experiences.

 

Snyder has previously said he’s most proud of keeping young people in Michigan and Detroit’s turnaround, which began with a bankruptcy filing he authorized. 

 

He’s also acknowledged failure at all levels of government for the Flint lead-contaminated water crisis.
