Center for Political Studies

by Public Relations Office - Cedarville, OH

In 2004, Cedarville University launched the Center for Political Studies (CPS) to articulate a biblical view of government through the study of politics, law, history, and public policy and to engage and influence American political culture. Students have opportunities to participate in innovative programs sponsored by the Center, including the Cedarville Roundtable, student research, and a summer scholars program.

This past spring, the CPS did a Webcast of on-campus lectures by Zakaria Fellah, a former U.N. representative and expert on terrorism. The Center also sponsored a spring Roundtable addressing the theme “Why Johnny Can’t Be Moral: Education and Virtue in America’s Democracy.”

The CPS is directed by Dr. Mark Caleb Smith, assistant professor of political science. Learn more about the CU Center for Political Studies.
