The co-hosts of MSNBC's "Morning Joe" are adding an Ivy League pedigree to their resumes.
Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski have been tapped to serve as visiting fellows at Harvard University's Institute of Politics this summer and fall.
Scarborough, a former GOP congressman, and Brzezinski, the Democrat daughter of Jimmy Carter's national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, will kick off their fellowships at an upcoming university gala with students and faculty in Washington D.C.
For several years, "Morning Joe" has been at the forefront of covering millennials in politics, and at Harvard they will engage directly with the young people who will reconnect America and serve as future political leaders," said former Rep. Bill Delahunt, the institute's interim director.
Scarborough and Brzezinski, who recently announced their engagement, will travel to Harvard to participate in campus events with students during their fellowships.
As a fellow, Brezinski will work with Harvard researchers on two books: one on millennial women and one on women making comebacks in their careers, The Harvard Crimson reports.
Brzezinski told the Crimson she and Scarborough are eager to hear students' views on the media and politics in a time of "great stress and upheaval." Scarborough said many schools are stuck in "inward intellectual bubbles just like the media has been in ideological bubbles" and he wants to encourage students to question their assumptions.
