Former FBI Director James Comey to Lead Lecture Series at Howard University
(FreshAsFrankie) Comey will be speaking at their 2017 convocation in September, which will kick off the school year. Along with speaking at the convocation, Comey was appointed the 2017-2018 Gwendolyn S. and Colbert King Endowed Chair in Public Policy for the University, which means he will be leading and conducting “five lectures and feature speakers that will touch on several topics.” According to Howard University, the series is “designed to foster fruitful discussion and spur meaningful interaction.”

For the position, Comey would be paid $100,000 for his work. However, he has made it clear that he would be donating the entire amount he would be compensated to a Howard scholarship fund. Comey issued a statement on being the King Chair for 2017 going into 2018, saying, “I am honored to hold the King Chair this school year. Howard has a longstanding history of being a vibrant academic community and the perfect place to have rich dialogue on many of the most pressing issues we face today. I look forward to contributing to this remarkable institution and engaging students and faculty alike.”
