SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Former Utah congressman Jason Chaffetz will be a visiting fellow at Harvard University this fall.

The school announced Wednesday that the Republican will be among six visiting fellows at Harvard's John F. Kennedy School of Government's Institute of Politics.

Chaffetz resigned from his seat in June, citing a desire to spend more time with his family.

Harvard's website says fellows spend their tenure at the Cambridge, Massachusetts-school and are expected to be on campus Monday through Thursday.

Chaffetz said Wednesday that his family will accompany him for part of his residency but he doesn't believe he needs to be on campus every week.

He says also he's spending time in Washington and New York City for his role as a Fox News Channel contributor, his fledgling consulting business and a book he's writing.
