Cedarville, Ohio--The national political science honor society, Pi Sigma Alpha, has awarded its Cedarville University chapter, Omega Mu, a grant for its distinguished speaker lecture series, honors ceremony, and paper contest. The award marks the second consecutive year that the chapter has received a grant through Pi Sigma Alpha's annual grant competition.
Omega Mu's faculty founder and advisor Dr. Gerson Moreno-Riaño said, "This is certainly an honor for our chapter and University. This will allow us to continue bringing speakers with national and international reputations to our campus." Moreno-Riaño is a Springfield resident who serves as assistant professor of political science in Cedarville University's department of social sciences and history.
Dr. Michael Sweeney, associate professor of philosophy at Xavier University, will deliver the Omega Mu Distinguished Speaker Lecture at CU in April. Sweeney is an expert on civic morality and political philosophy and has been a Fulbright Fellow in Moscow. He is a member of Societe por les Etudes Medievale, a prestigious international society for medieval scholars. The grant will also allow the chapter to sponsor a paper contest on religion and politics and an honors ceremony for the chapter's new inductees.
