As Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney considered options for his running mate in the 2012 election, more of the nation was introduced to Dartmouth alumnus and friend of the Rockefeller Center - Ohio Sen. Rob Portman '78.
Sen. Portman has actively engaged in creating opportunities for Dartmouth students to learn and experience public policy, including a visit in early July.
Portman is featured in this Dartmouth Now post.
“Both in Washington while serving in government, and in Hanover on trips
back to campus, Rob has made a point of sharing the benefits of his
insights and experiences with Dartmouth students who are just embarking
on careers that will be spent trying to address the public policy
challenges that face their generation,” says Professor Andrew Samwick, the Sandra L. and Arthur L. Irving ’72a, P ’10 Professor of Economics, and director of the Center.
