Former Congressman Christopher Shays has been named a University of New Haven Distinguished Fellow in Public Service, it was announced today.

A resident of the Black Rock section of Bridgeport, Shays represented the southwest region of Connecticut, including Westport, from 1987 to 2009. He was defeated in his re-election bid by Democrat jim Himes and was unsuccessful last year in seeking the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate.

“Chris Shays has a wealth of knowledge and experience to offer our students and faculty,” said UNH President Steven H. Kaplan. “I am delighted that he will work across program and college lines to share his background and experience with our campus and local community.”

The university said Shays’s appointment is made possible with support from Philip Bartels, chairman of the UNH Board of Governors, and his wife, Susan, longtime admirers of Shays’s work.

Shays initially will be teaching courses in the Henry C. Lee College of Criminal Justice and Forensic Sciences and in the Colleges of Business and Arts and Sciences in both public policy and public administration.

He also is planning to write articles on public policy and public service, the university said.
