  • Think About It:

    "The ultimate principle is that you must put no man on trial under the forum of judicial proceedings if you are not willing to see him freed if not proved guilty....The world yields no respect to courts that are merely organized to convict."

    -- Robert Jackson-Chief U.S. Prosecutor, Nuremburg, Germany

    Washington Program in National Issues

    I have the honor and great pleasure to direct one of the finest off-campus programs that Kent State offers its students: the Washington Program in National Issues. WPNI is a full 15-week academic/internship program offered each spring semester. Juniors and seniors from various academic disciplines study the U.S. political process and national policy issues firsthand in the most dynamic and stimulating political atmosphere in the world - Washington, D.C.

    Take a look at this impressive program - perhaps it is for you.

    And, just for the fun of it, take a look at my "Pennsylvania Avenue Tour" that is a part of the WPNI. Get some behind-the-scenes history of this fascinating street in Washington.

    General Information and Interests
