The University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics (UCIP) announced that former Reps. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas.), and Tim Ryan (D-Ohio), who last year fell short in bids for higher office in their respective states, are among the eight new fellows for its Pritzker Fellows Program for the spring semester.

In a news release on Thursday, UCIP shared that along with Ryan and O’Rourke, four other former politicians will be joining its 2023 fellowship program: former Rep. Peter Meijer (R-Mich.), former Shreveport, La., Mayor Adrian Perkins (D), former Illinois state lawmaker Robin Rue Simmons and former Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak (D).

PBS Chicago-affiliated station WTTW reporter Heather Cherone and journalist and author Matthew Yglesias will also host seminars for the university’s political institute.


They have so much wisdom to impart.
