The Daily Beast reports that Clinton is considering a "University Professor" role at the Ivy League school, which would allow her to lecture on a broad range of subjects without requiring a strict course load. 

“It's all fluid. It could be a number of things. No decisions have been made, but there are talks,” a source said.


“She's trying to figure out what she wants to do. It could end up with the papers at one place and she has some sort of faculty role at another. She hasn't quite come to a decision,” the source added.

Clinton, a former professor at the University of Arkansas School of Law, is currently on a book tour for her third memoir, "What Happened." The book details her 2016 campaign and eventual loss to President Trump.

The Daily Beast's source close to the former secretary of State said that her move back to academia would likely come within weeks, not months.

“I don't think it will be two years from now. She gave birth to this book last month. She's trying to get through that. But it will be a short time table."

Clinton attended Wellesley College, where she majored in political science, before going to Yale Law School.

“I was shocked and appalled by the revelations about Harvey Weinstein,” Clinton said in a statement Tuesday.

“The behavior described by women coming forward cannot be tolerated. Their courage and the support of others is critical in helping to stop this kind of behavior," she added.
