Buttigieg to teach, do research at Notre Dame in 2020-21
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — The University of Notre Dame has hired former South Bend mayor and presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg as a researcher and teacher for the 2020-2021 academic year.
The university announced last week that as a faculty fellow in the Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study, Buttigieg will work on two research projects: one that explores how to restore trust in political institutions and another that considers the forces shaping the 2020s.
He joins a group of more than 30 faculty, graduate and undergraduate fellows who will conduct research on the nature of trust, the institute’s 2020-2021 research theme, the South Bend Tribun e reported.
He also will teach an undergraduate course on the importance of trust in different fields, the university said. The seminar draws on literature, politics, economics and philosophy, with guest experts participating.
