B.J. Rudell Joins POLIS
Dear Friends of POLIS,
Landy Elliott left her position as associate director of POLIS at the end of August. I was very sad about that (as was Landy!), but her family had an opportunity to move to Prague for a few years and decided they couldn’t turn it down. Landy made a tremendous impact during POLIS’ first year and I wish her well in this new chapter of her life.
However, I am very excited to have welcomed B.J. Rudell as the new associate director. He’s working closely with me to carry on the job of building POLIS. B.J.’s 20+ year career has included stints on Capitol Hill, on a presidential campaign, in a newsroom, in classrooms, and for a consulting firm. He has authored two books and numerous political op-eds. B.J. is already continuing Landy’s legacy of shaping POLIS into one of the premier institutes of politics in higher education.
Please join me in thanking Landy for a job well done and welcoming B.J. to POLIS!
