The Georgetown Institute of Politics and Public Service (GU Politics) at the McCourt School of Public Policy today welcomed its Fellows Class for the fall of 2016.

Fall 2016 Fellows:

  • Scott Mulhauser (L’05), Former Chief of Staff, U.S. Embassy, Beijing; former VP Biden Deputy Chief of Staff, Obama-Biden 2012
  • Martin O'Malley (P’13), 61st Governor of Maryland; Candidate for President of the United States
  • Rebecca Sinderbrand (C’99), Deputy National Political Editor, The Washington Post
  • Michael Steel, Former Senior Advisor, Jeb! 2016; former Press Secretary, House Speaker John Boehner
  • Juana Summers, Editor, CNN Politics

“A former Presidential candidate and governor, two top political staffers, and two top political journalists-- including two Hoyas and a Hoya parent,” said Mo Elleithee, Executive Director of GU Politics. “We could not be more thrilled or proud to welcome this class to the Hilltop.”

The Fellows will immerse themselves in life on campus, host a weekly discussion group on a pressing political topic, and meet with students during their office hours to talk about their careers or the political news of the day.

A part of the McCourt School but open to the whole University community, GU Politics opened it’s doors last fall as the hub for all things politics on Georgetown’s campus.

Students can apply to join one of the Student Strategy Teams that will be assigned to each Fellow – to help with research, campus outreach, and participate in a “Political Hackathon,” coming up with practical ideas to make politics work better.
