Uribe, who left office this month after eight years, will teach seminars on international relations, according to the Georgetown statement.
Uribe, who as president received over $500 million a year in American anti-narcotics and counterinsurgency aid, is also partaking in a United Nations panel investigating Israel’s raid on a Gaza-bound humanitarian aid flotilla.
