Congressman Steve Israel
Chairman, Global Institute at LIU

Former United States Congressman Steve Israel currently serves as Chairman of the Global Institute at Long Island University and a University Writer-In-Residence. He was a Member of Congress for sixteen years. President Bill Clinton called him “one of the most thoughtful Members of Congress.”

During his four years as Chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), Israel was the chief architect of House campaign strategies. He was responsible for overall development of competitive House campaigns across America and was lauded for recruiting and electing the most diverse and entrepreneurial freshman congressional class in history. After chairing DCCC for two election cycles, Israel’s House Democratic colleagues elected him to chair the Democratic Policy & Communications Committee, where he led the research and development of strategic brand messaging and communications strategies for House Democrats.

Today, Israel is a political commentator on CNN, and regularly shares his insight in the New York Times, Washington Post, Foreign Affairs and has appeared on 60 Minutes, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, Fox News, MSNBC, and elsewhere. In addition, Israel is currently a strategic advisor to the Democratic Governors Association and Third Way.

Partly based on current events and national news during his tenure in Congress, Israel published a critically acclaimed satire of Washington, entitled “The Global War on Morris” in 2014. His second novel, “Big Guns,” is expected to be published in 2018 by Simon & Schuster.
