Faculty

The Robertson School of Government has crafted an academic team whose sole mission is to train the next generation of principled Christian leaders. Your educational foundation will benefit from professors who are published scholars, or who were leaders in Washington, D.C., former Cabinet members, retired military officers, and practitioners from local and state government.

Our faculty hold advanced degrees from institutions such as Aberystwyth, Brandeis, Duke, Oxford University, Michigan, and the University of Virginia. They have a passion for teaching and a love for students. Throughout our program your confidence will rise as you acquire the tools and knowledge needed to fulfill your life's mission.
