Alvin Brown slated as Spring Georgetown University fellow

The “biggest names in politics are going back to school,” and former Jacksonville Mayor Alvin Brown is among them.

Brown will serve as a fellow at the Georgetown University Institute of Politics and Public Service this spring, along with Jackie Kucinich, former Costa Rican President Laura Chinchilla, and several others.

“The Fellows Program connects students with political leaders to learn from one another and tackle some of the biggest political challenges of the day. Each semester, some of the top names in politics, government, and media will go back to school, leading a weekly non-credit discussion group on a hot topic, holding office hours for students, and speaking to a variety of campus groups,” claims the Institute.

In a statement Monday afternoon, Mayor Brown expressed his excitement about the four month program.

“I’m excited for this opportunity to share what I’ve learned about leadership and governing, and also to learn more about the issues driving some of our nation’s brightest young minds on a career path toward public service. During my time as mayor, I felt blessed with the responsibility to touch people’s lives and create meaningful partnerships to do public good. If there is one point I hope students come away with, it’s that public service is a highly noble endeavor built upon vision, teamwork, perseverance and gratitude.”
