Before retiring from full-time teaching in 2015, Professor Lagon spent most of her professional life at Georgetown University, where she served on the faculties of both the Government Department and the Government Affairs Institute (GAI). She designed and taught American Government and Constitutional Law to undergraduates on campus and courses about Congress for federal agency personnel on Capitol Hill. She has spoken for more than 500 international visitors’ programs sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and continues to lecture and write frequently for GAI as well as serving on its Board of Directors. Recent audiences for her various presentations include Georgetown University, the Canada School of Public Service, Smithsonian Associates, OASIS, and the Culinary Historians of Washington. Susan earned her B.A. and M.A. in Government and Foreign Affairs at the University of Virginia and her Ph.D. in Government from Georgetown University. Before joining the faculty at Georgetown, she was a book editor with Congressional Quarterly Press and taught Government and AP Politics at the National Cathedral School/St. Albans. For the past few years, she has served as the Hotel Historian at the Jefferson Hotel four blocks north of the White House—no doubt the best job in the hospitality industry—where she designs custom tours and interprets Jefferson’s political, culinary, and architectural contributions to American life.
