Lugar to lecture at Georgetown in 2013

Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Ind., who will leave office at month’s end, will join Georgetown University’s Public Policy Institute this spring as a visiting distinguished professor of public policy, the school announced Friday.

Lugar will bring his expertise in international relations, arms control, energy, technology and agricultural policy to the classroom as a guest lecturer in the spring and fall of 2013, the school said.

“Given Sen. Lugar’s distinguished career in public service and his breadth of experience, we are honored to have him join us in 2013,” Edward Montgomery, dean of the institute, said in a written statement. “Our faculty and students will benefit greatly from Sen. Lugar’s expertise in a wide array of policy areas.”

Lugar previously announced that he will launch a Washington internship academy for the University of Indianapolis and lecture at the school.

“I am looking forward to devoting deeper attention to a number of issues that have been a part of my Senate service and working with students and future leaders on how we can solve the world’s most complex problems,” Lugar said of the Georgetown position. “Working with Georgetown University and cooperating with other institutions, I know we can make difference.”

Lugar was defeated in his bid for re-election during Indiana’s primary election.
