Marc Short to return to White House
As a Miller Center senior fellow, he contributed valuable insights about the Trump administration
Marc Short, a senior fellow at the nonpartisan Miller Center of Public Affairs, has stepped down from his position to return to government service in the White House, as chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence.
Short, who was formerly the White House director of legislative affairs for President Donald Trump, joined the Miller Center in August 2018 as a part-time senior fellow, one of five veteran officials from both Republican and Democratic administrations who contribute their expertise to the Miller Center’s study of the American presidency.
During his fellowship at the Miller Center, Short participated in public panels and events, engaged with students and faculty across the University of Virginia, and offered candid insights about the Trump administration and our current political system that helped inform Miller Center research.
“The Miller Center congratulates Marc on his new appointment with Vice President Pence,” said William Antholis, Miller Center director and CEO. “Marc helped Miller Center scholars and UVA students better understand the Trump administration from multiple angles, giving us a clear-eyed insider’s view of a White House operation that is often difficult to grasp—including both the administration’s accomplishments and controversies. He did so with a spirit of honesty and collegiality that is essential to civil discourse.”
