Jeb Bush gets post at University of Pennsylvania

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush will be spending time with students at the University of Pennsylvania.

The Ivy League school in Philadelphia announced that Bush has been named a non-resident Presidential Professor of Practice for the 2018-2019 academic year.

“At a time when our politics and culture can be polarizing and coarse, there is a tremendous need to foster civil discourse on the most pressing challenges and opportunities facing our country,” Bush said in a statement released by the university.

His affiliation will be with the university’s Andrea Mitchell Center for the Study of Democracy in the School of Arts and Sciences. The position requires Bush to participate in classes, lectures and campus events. He will be on campus about one to two days a month, the university said.

University President Amy Gutmann highlighted Bush’s efforts to “stimulate economic growth and create jobs, lower government spending, transform education, and dramatically expand conservation of the Everglades.”

After Bush’s unsuccessful run for president in 2016, he served a semester as a visiting fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School and taught a short course at Texas A&M University’s school of public affairs in early 2017.

The News Service of Florida provides journalists, lobbyists, government officials and other civic leaders with comprehensive, objective information about the activities of state government year-round.

  1. Jeb Bush is as phony as a three dollar bill. As quoted in this article, Bush said,” At a time when our politics and culture can be polarizing and coarse, there is a need to foster civil discourse on the most pressing challenges and opportunities facing our country.” Now, try and square that statement with the fact that maybe two or three days later he is on the campaign trail for Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis, two of the country’s most polarizing figures.

    Low energy Jeb, please hurry your but to the university in Pennsylvania and stay there – FOREVER.

    Kudos to all universities and colleges in Florida for not hiring Jeb in our state. He has done enough damage to education in Florida.
