Former Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell will serve as a visiting professor at Liberty University, located in Lynchburg, VA. The Christian based university has 10,000 students enrolled in campus and online classes. A spokesperson for the university said that McDonnell has guest lectured in Liberty’s Helms School of Government for nearly a month.
“I am privileged to have the opportunity to teach the outstanding young people at Liberty University who will be future leaders for the state and nation,” McDonnell said in a statement released by the school. “Liberty’s international reach, dynamic growth and focus on excellence make it a force in higher education.”
According to the Richmond Times-Dispatch,McDonnell indicated near the end of his term as governor that his future could involve higher education, but speculation about his post-gubernatorial life was eventually consumed by whether he would be indicted.
Senior vice president for communications Johnnie Moore stated that McDonnell is not scheduled to lecture in another class this semester, but the school is developing its schedule for fall, when he could lecture four to six times during the semester.
