According to the Greater Baton Rouge Business Report , Carville will leave Tulane University in January, where he’s taught for the past nine years. At LSU, Carville will teach in the Manship school’s political communication concentration, including a seminar on contemporary political issues and a senior class that will examine one significant issue such as Louisiana’s vanishing coastline.
In a statement, Carville said, “The mother ship has called my pirogue home.”
