Campus Champion

There’s no better time to be taking a course titled “The American Presidency,” and no one better to teach it than Distinguished Service Professor Robert J. Spitzer. This noted authority on U.S. politics and gun control is a sought-after speaker beyond his political science classroom. He’s led numerous election talks, including one on campus this month. He’ll also present his newest book chapter to an Ohio audience and will have taped four weekly TV shows by October’s end. Then there’s his role as author: the regular Huffington Post contributor has penned 14 books and more than 500 articles, book chapters, reviews, papers and essays.
