Six-term U.S. Senator Richard Lugar will teach at Indiana University, school officials announced Thursday.
Lugar will join the faculty of IU’s School of Global and International Studies as a distinguished scholar. In addition, IU President Michael McRobbie says Lugar will make a notable donation to the school.
“I am also delighted to announce that Senator Lugar has chosen Indiana University’s Modern Political Papers Collection, which is housed in the Herman B. Wells library as the official and permanent repository for his senatorial papers,” McRobbie said.
In addition to serving as a faculty member for the IU School of Global and International Studies, Senator Lugar and former Congressman Lee Hamilton will co-chair the newly-formed IU International Advisory Committee.
“I am very, very hopeful that these opportunities, these classes, these lectures, these advisory committee opportunities will come many great leaders for America, not only for Indiana, but for our country and for the world,” Lugar said.
Lugar will also join Hamilton on the staff of the IU Center on Congress, a body in which the two combined to serve 70 years.
