Professor Cheney? Liz To Teach At Major University
It will not be her full-time job. Liz Cheney has, as usual, many irons in the fire.
Former Republican Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney will be teaching at the University of Virginia’s Center For Politics. Her position will be "professor of practice", according to the university.
Cheney will lecture in both classes and events and partake in the university’s research, according to the Center For Politics.
Currently, this position will run through the fall semester. But they might invite her back should they decide to renew her after that first semester.
“I am delighted to be joining the UVA Center for Politics as a Professor of Practice. Preserving our constitutional republic is the most important work of our time, and our nation’s young people will play a crucial role in this effort. I look forward to working with students and colleagues at the Center to advance the important work they and others at the University of Virginia are doing to improve the health of democracy here and around the world,” Cheney said in a statement.
She's not been doing nothing since she is no longer a Wyoming representative.
There are speaking engagements and her work to make sure that Donald Trump is not the Republican nominee in 2024.
“There are many threats facing our system of government and I hope my work with the Center for Politics and the broader community at the University of Virginia will contribute to finding lasting solutions that not only preserve but strengthen our democracy,” Cheney said in a statement.
Cheney organized a political action committee, known as The Great Task, following her Wyoming defeat. She reportedly created the PAC to prevent Trump from returning to office. The money to start that group came from political fundraising during her reelection bid in Wyoming. Most of that money was not spent on trying to get reelected.
