Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer has joined the list of 2017-2018 visiting fellows at Harvard University, as well as Hillary Clinton’s former campaign manager Robby Mook and convicted national security secret leaker Chelsea Manning.

The Institute of Politics (IOP) at Harvard Kennedy School announced Wednesday that the trio would be included in the visiting fellows program, which “brings distinguished veterans of public life to campus for a limited, yet comprehensive number of events” aimed at engaging with undergraduate students.

“This expanded group of Visiting Fellows will be able to fulfill the Institute’s mission of engaging students in discourse on topical issues of today, including local politics with Mayor Sly James, election cybersecurity with Robby Mook, White House communications with Sean Spicer, and issues of LGBTQ identity in the military with Chelsea Manning,” Emily Hall and Jason Ge, co-chairs of the IOP Fellows and Study Groups Program, said in a press release.

“This unique opportunity to closely engage with our Visiting Fellows will surely shape the semester, and we hope many students will participate in the upcoming events and discussions,” they said.

Other visiting fellows announced for this school year included Kansas City Mayor Sly James, conservative political commentators Guy Benson and Mary Katharine Ham, former Kentucky Gov. Steven Beshear, NAACP President and CEO Cornell William Brooks, former Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, MSNBC hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, and Democratic political strategist Joe Slade White.
