UM Alumnus Named to White House Post
November 15, 2016
Reince Priebus, a Miami Law alumnus and chairman of the Republican National Committee, has been tapped to be White House chief of staff for President-elect Donald J. Trump.
A Wisconsin native, Priebus graduated from the University of Miami School of Law cum laude with a J.D. degree in 1998. First elected chairman of the RNC in 2011, he is credited with deftly reorganizing the RNC and digging it out of financial turmoil.
As chief of staff, Priebus is being looked upon as a positive connector between the Republican establishment and the Trump White House.
