Former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan to join Notre Dame faculty

Ryan, who recently finished two consecutive terms as Speaker of the House, has served as a Republican representative of Wisconsin’s first congressional district for the last 20 years. He will be joining former Indiana senator Joe Donnelly and former White House chief-of-staff Denis McDonough as “professors of the practice” at the University, the release said.
“The study of political science is strengthened when students hear from people with real-world policy and political experience,” David Campbell, chair of the political science department at Notre Dame, said. “Having former officials in the classroom provides important insights for students — an opportunity to put the theories we study to the test.”
Ryan will be lecturing on topics such as the basics of the United States government, current polarization in American politics and the intersection between Catholicism and economics, among other topics, the release said.

Paul Ryan says rest of the world should be more like Taiwan

"Taiwan is a democratic success story, a reliable partner and a force for good in the world," Ryan said at a celebration for the 40th anniversary of the Taiwan Relations Act, which guides U.S. policy toward Taiwan.
While the U.S. does not have formal diplomatic ties with the island, the act requires Washington to ensure that Taiwan can defend itself. "We want the rest of the world to be more like Taiwan," said Ryan, who led an American delegation to the American Institute in Taiwan, the de facto U.S. embassy. He said both parties care deeply about the "critically important relationship" between the U.S. and Taiwan.
