On Monday, August 25, 2014, Travis began teaching Political Management at the George Washington University’s Graduate School of Political Management. His role at GW as an online course facilitator will be in addition to his daily functions as a political account coordinator at Innovative.
In the new position, Travis is responsible for content delivery, grading, and building student relationships in an online format. He will be leading a class of more than 20 graduate students studying political management.
“Teaching has been a desire of mine since undergraduate,” Travis said of his new role. “When you have excellent professors who influence your life, as I did at UL, you want to pass that on to others. It’s the primary reason I went to graduate school.”
Not only is Travis teaching at the George Washington University, it’s his alma mater. He received his Master’s Degree in Political Management from the program he is now teaching.
“It’s exciting to get to return to GW as an instructor,” Travis continued. “I greatly appreciate the opportunity afforded to, and the faith placed in, me by Dr. Lara Brown, Dr. Michael Cornfield, and Dr. Shaun Herness.”
Professor Herness will be the instructor of record for the course Travis is facilitating.
During the semester, which runs for six weeks in the online format, Travis will teach one section of Fundamentals of Political Management, an introductory course to the graduate program.
“I’m very excited about this opportunity to help train the next generation of political operatives. They are undoubtedly very driven and professional students, so I’m looking forward to a great semester,” Travis concluded.
