Over the years, Corey Lewandowski, a Lowell native, has been many things: a legislative aide, a marine patrol officer, a staffer for a Koch brothers-sponsored group, Donald Trump’s presidential campaign manager, a television pundit, and a federal lobbyist.

This fall, add to that list: a visiting fellow at Harvard’s Institute of Politics.

The IOP announced this week that Lewandowski will be a presence on campus along with former Kentucky governor Steve Beshear, conservative journalists Mary Katharine Ham and Guy Benson, and veteran Democratic ad maker Joe Slade White. The school previously announced that MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski will also be visiting fellows this fall.


Lewandowski returns to Harvard’s Institute of Politics following his appearance in a testy post-election symposium there in December. Senior staff for the Trump and Hillary Clinton campaigns sat on a panel intended to provide reflection on the campaign’s key moments. The discussion quickly devolved into a shouting match.

Lewandowski lives with his family in New Hampshire.
