Jesse Ventura Will Teach Harvard a Thing or Two

Is Harvard ready to rumble?

Jesse Ventura, former governor of Minnesota, political pundit and pro wrestler, will soon teach at Harvard University, a university spokesman said.

The college dropout will serve as a visiting fellow at the Institute of Politics at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government during the spring semester.

A visiting fellow gives seminars and oversees study groups that last up to three months. Students do not normally receive academic credit for such courses.


“The idea was given by our undergraduate students,” said Andy Solomon, spokesman for the university.

Ventura, 52, was a guest speaker at the school in 1999.
