Former Sen. Carol Moseley-Braun To Teach at DePaulFormer Illinois Sen. Carol Moseley-Braun will teach business law at DePaul University’s College of Commerce beginning in September.
The 53-year-old former U.S. Ambassador to New Zealand, Samoa, Antarctica and the Cook Islands, will teach a course on corporate governance issues titled “Legal Aspects of Business — Total Perspective for the Executive.”
Moseley-Braun, who in 1992 became the first African American woman elected to the U.S. Senate, says the subject is now more important than ever given the scandals engulfing the business world.
“We have been reminded of the devastating real-life impacts of corporate offenses, and we must recommit to producing leaders who better understand and can better fulfill their responsibilities,” she says.
Moseley-Braun grew up on Chicago’s South Side, earning a bachelor’s degree from the University of Illinois in 1969 and a law degree from the University of Chicago in 1972. The Democrat was defeated for re-election by Republican Peter Fitzgerald in 1998.
