Introducing, Professor Jeb!

The former Florida governor and presidential candidate is joining the faculty at the Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University, the school announced Friday. He will be an executive professor and John D. White '70 Distinguished Professor of Practice.

Bush will teach a 10-day concentrated course in January on the role of gubernatorial leadership and its impact on government at all levels. Bush School Dean Mark Welsh said in a release that 65 Bush School students have already signed up for the course, which will be prior to the formal start of the university’s spring semester.

“Governor Bush is a dedicated and accomplished public servant who will provide our students—future leaders in public life—with a vivid perspective of the challenges facing state officials,” said Welsh. “We are very pleased to offer a course of this nature and look forward to Governor Bush’s arrival on campus.”

Bush School professor Dr. Blease Graham will serve as co-instructor for the Jan. 6-16 course. The school said students will get “a firsthand account of the roles and responsibilities of the state executive from the governor of a diverse and increasingly populated state.”

In a video announcement posted by the school on Facebook, Bush promised to not show the “Hook ‘em horns” symbol while there.
