Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government is courting former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to work there, according to a school spokesman.
“We have extended an invitation to [former] Secretary Clinton to consider engaging with the university and would of course welcome her interest in a range of roles,” Doug Gavel, a spokesman for the Kennedy School, said in an e-mailed statement.
Gavel declined to comment further. Representatives for Clinton did not respond to requests for comment this week.
Reports in recent weeks have said Clinton is weighing offers from a number of offers from colleges and universities.
Clinton is considered a potential candidate for president in next election in 2016. She has not announced her plans.
Politico.com reported recently that working with an academic institution could be a major benefit to Clinton’s potential presidential candidacy.
“It would provide her with a credible backdrop for speeches and events that would take her outside of a hotel ballroom or something sponsored by her family’s foundation or another outside group,” the media outlet reported.
According to Politico, other schools that have invited Clinton include: Yale University, her law school alma mater; New York University, where her daughter, Chelsea works; and Baruch College.
On Monday, Harvard announced that it will honor several dignitaries, including Clinton's husband, former President Bill Clinton, and daughter, Chelsea, at a ceremony next month at the Harvard School of Public Health as the school celebrates its 100th anniversary.
