Biographical Information

I am currently Professor of Political Science, Public Administration Department Chair, and Director of the Master of Public Administration (MPA) program in the College of Public Service and Director of the Compass Curriculum at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS). I have been at UCCS for 31 years, including five years as department chair and 20 in campus academic affairs. My administrative career has spanned nearly all of the areas in academic affairs. I completed my doctoral studies at the University of Texas at Austin and was on the faculty of the University of Miami before coming to UCCS. My research has focused on voting and elections, public opinion, representation and social capital.
