This was announced yesterday:
Ryan will serve as a professor of practice during the 2019-20 academic year and will lecture on subjects including American government, political polarization, Catholicism and economics.
“It is an honor to be part of a University where Catholic principles, robust debates, academic freedoms and diverse viewpoints are allowed to flourish,” Ryan said in a statement. “As much as I hope to impart as a lecturer, I know that I will learn a tremendous amount from Notre Dame’s remarkable students as we discuss the big challenges before our nation and collaborate on how best to address them.”Ryan was Speaker beginning in October 2015 and until January of this year, when current Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) took over the role.
Notre Dame in its announcement Monday noted that former Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) and former Obama administration White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough were also recently appointed to the faculty.
