Setti Warren may be stepping aside as Newton’s mayor after his term ends in January, but he’ll remain close to the city as he joins Mount Ida College as a visiting fellow. Warren, a Newton native who has served as mayor for two terms, will teach in Mount Ida’s political science and pre-law programs, the school said in a statement. He will work with students on civic engagement and service learning initiatives, as well as help with the college’s fund-raising and community relations. The Newton campus has about 1,500 students and offers about 40 majors, according to the school’s website. Last year, Warren decided against seeking a third mayoral term in order to run as a Democratic candidate for governor.
