Well.. sort of.

He may be the next President of Harvard University.

Drew Gilpin Faust, the current President of Harvard University, is set to step down in June, 2018.  She assumed office in July, 2007.

How will she be succeeded by?

Deirdre Fernandes and Laura Krantz of the Boston Globe have listed Barack Obama, among six others individuals from the Harvard community, as possibilities –

David W. Leebron

Shirley Ann Jackson

Michael M. Crow

Janet Yellen (pictured to the left of Obama in the featured image)

I wish Obama the best of luck if he does indeed wish to become the next President of Harvard University.


Some closing notes and other data –

(a)  Obama graduated from Harvard Law School in 1991

(b)  Obama served as the first African American editor of the Harvard Law Review

(c)  evidently Faust was paid $1.2 million in total compensation from Harvard in 2014 (data isn’t available for 2015 or 2016)

(d)  should Obama write a White House memoir before he embarks on an education career (e.g., President of Harvard University)?

Barack and Michelle recently purchased this 9 bedroom mansion (they were renting it before they decided to purchase it this month – May, 2017)

It’s official – Barack Obama will not be leaving Washington DC for at least a few more years. Obama and his family have now bought the stylish and cool looking mansion (@ $8.1 million) that they were originally just renting. They moved in back in January, as renters, after Barack left the White House.

Recently the home was officially sold to Homefront Holdings LLC, which is controlled by Barack and Michelle Obama.

Evidently the Obama family will continue to live in their new home, which is located in the Kalorama neighborhood of Washington DC, for at least a few more years.  Barack and Michelle have indicated that they want their youngest daughter Sasha (born: June 10, 2001 – age 15) to finish high school at Sidwell Friends School (a highly selective Quaker school in Washington DC).
