NEW YORK — Mayor Edward I. Koch, defeated in the city's Democratic mayoral primary last month, was named Friday to a one-year fellowship at New York University.
Starting in January, Koch will give six lectures at the Urban Research Center of the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service. He will focus on the economic and social challenges facing cities and the role of government in urban policy.
The three-term mayor and former congressman will also meet with students and faculty at the university during his appointment as Marnold Visiting Fellow. The salary for Koch, a graduate of NYU's law school, was not disclosed.
