One of the best things about teaching and researching political science is the regular opportunity to learn new things, to connect both established and emerging political science theory and findings with contemporary politics. Both my teaching style and my expectations of students reflect my belief that there is always something new to learn about American politics and public policy. Understanding how the policy process operates, including how political scientists understand it, will help students become better citizens and everyday policy practitioners.
