You have ex-CNNer Candy Crowley, who left CNN in 2014 on her own volition (according to a release put out by CNN President Jeff Zucker, who was never that sweet on her), former aide to ex-House Maj. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) Doug HeyeLindiwe Mazibuko,  former member of South Africa’s Parliament, Wendy Sherman, Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs, Scott Smith, former Mayor of Mesa, Ariz., Brent Colburn, former asst. to the Sec. of Defense, Cornel Belcher, former Obama pollster, and Tom DeFrank, contributing editor, National Journal.

Watch out, students. According to a statement from Harvard, resident fellows will interact with students. They will participate in the “intellectual” life of the Harvard community.

“Over the course of an academic semester, Resident Fellows interact with students, develop and lead weekly study groups and are afforded many opportunities to participate in the intellectual life of the Harvard community. Visiting Fellows join the Institute for a shorter period and maximize their time meeting with students, faculty and Harvard research center staff.”

Heye told The Mirror, “I will be focusing on crisis communications. Having visited the IOP twice, I could not think of a better opportunity than to work with their top-notch students and faculty. I have no doubt that I will learn much more than I teach.”
