Middlebury College officials announced that Vermont Gov. Jim Douglas (R), a member of the college's class of 1972, will be an executive-in-residence at the college beginning this January.
Douglas will teach a winter-term course, titled Vermont Government and Politics, and serve as mentor and adviser to students interested in politics and Vermont affairs.
Aside from his teaching and working with students, the outgoing governor plans to spend time writing about his more than 35 years in Vermont politics, including the last eight years as governor.
Douglas is a long-time resident of Middlebury.
