Moynihan Takes Job At Syracuse UniversitySYRACUSE, N.Y.
Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan, the former Democratic senator from New York, has accepted a faculty position with the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University.
The 73-year-old will continue to live and keep an office in Washington and commute regularly to Syracuse, The New York Times reported.
Moynihan will participate in several programs that the Maxwell School runs in Washington, and while the senator won’t teach courses, he will lecture, tutor and hold seminars. Dr. John L. Palmer, the school’s dean, told the Times that Moynihan’s title will be university professor, the highest faculty rank at Syracuse.
The senator, who holds a doctorate from Tufts University’s Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, was on the faculty at the Maxwell School from 1959 to 1961, and left to go to Washington at the beginning of President Kennedy’s administration to take a position in the Labor Department.
Before he was elected to the Senate in 1976, Moynihan served in the Johnson, Nixon and Ford administrations. Between government appointments, he taught education and politics at Harvard.
He did not run for re-election this year. First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton was elected to his seat.
