Former Jacksonville Mayor Alvin Brown is heading back to school in the spring.

Brown has accepted an appointment at Washington, D.C.’s Georgetown University in the school’s Institute of Politics and Public Service. 

Along with other former political office holders and insiders, Brown will be one of the school’s fellows, leading students in discussions of current-day political challenges.

According to the Georgetown website, Brown’s discussion group is titled “Successess and Struggles of a 21st-Century Mayor.

Brown was the first-ever African-American elected mayor of Jacksonville. The Democratic mayor also held posts in the Bush and Clinton administrations before taking local office.
