Former Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson is taking his political expertise to the classroom.
Nelson has entered into an agreement with the University of Nebraska at Omaha serving as the school's Political Science Department's “Politician-in-Residence.”
Part of Nelson’s responsibilities will include team-teaching an upper-division course each semester.
Thursday, Nelson joins UNO’s Jonathan Benjamin-Alvarado, professor of political science, for a lecture titled “The Impact of Hyper-partisanship on American Foreign Policy.”
The lecture is open to all UNO faculty, staff and students.
Nelson will address how the partisanship in Congress has hindered and/or distorted the foreign policy process. A question-and-answer period will follow the lecture.
Nelson will also speak the following week on Tuesday, April 2.
