DeWine Takes Visiting Scholar Role at Cedarville University

by Public Relations Office - Cedarville, OH

Cedarville, Ohio-Cedarville University has announced that former U.S. Sen. Mike DeWine will serve as a Visiting Scholar in the University's Center for Political Studies (CPS) for the Spring 2007 Semester.

DeWine will lecture in the upper-level class "Leadership and Decision-Making in Modern American Politics" with Dr. Mark Caleb Smith, director of the CPS. The class begins this week. DeWine will also consult with the University on their semester in Washington, D.C., program, which is slated to begin in 2008.

Smith noted, "Professors are good at providing theories, but Senator DeWine can provide something we can't. Having him close by to help students see how things really work is invaluable."

A Cedarville resident, DeWine is no stranger to the University. In 1999, he and his wife, Fran, received the University's Medal of Honor for their commitment to family as well as their leadership in the causes of free enterprise, responsible government, and traditional Christian values. He also spoke as a guest lecturer in a Cedarville University political science class in 2005.

Cedarville University launched the Center for Political Studies (CPS) in 2004 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. Learn more.
