Fmr. White House CoS Bolten '76 to become Wilson School prof

Former White House Chief of Staff Joshua Bolten '76 will join the University faculty for the upcoming academic year as a visiting professor in the Wilson School.

A graduate of the Wilson School, Bolten will teach an undergrad course on the federal budget this fall. Next spring, he'll teach two graduate seminars, most likely ones related to politics, international trade and international financial regulation.

Bolten, 54, served as George W. Bush's chief of staff from April 2006 until he left office on January 20 of this year. Before that, Bolten spent almost three years as director of the Office of Management and Budget (that position is held by Peter Orzag '91 in the Obama White House).

Before stints as deputy chief of staff for policy and as policy director for the Bush 2000 presidential campaign, Bolten was executive director for legal and governmental affairs for Goldman Sachs International.
