Outgoing Governor Martin O'Malley will become a visiting professor at Johns Hopkins' Carey Business School beginning Feb. 2, school officials said.
The two-term governor, whose tenure in office ends next week, will focus on government, business and urban issues, JHU officials said. O'Malley, a former Baltimore mayor, won't be teaching courses on his own, but participating in classes that cover topics such as leadership, infrastructure, entrepreneurship and ethics, school officials said.
His first day will be Feb. 2.
"Gov. O'Malley has devoted his career to bringing data-driven decision-making to tackling our city and state's most complex challenges," said JHU President Ronald J. Daniels in a prepared statement. "His insights and experience will be of enormous benefit to our students and faculty."
JHU officials said that O'Malley will work with other faculty members and students in the government management studies.
"I am honored to join Johns Hopkins University, a world-class institution that has done so much for Baltimore and Maryland," O'Malley said in a prepared statement.
O'Malley, who's said he's still mulling a run for the White House, also has signed on with a Washington speakers' bureau. He told reporters he'll be giving speeches around the country on "performance management."
