Research Project: Constitutional Conservation and the Courts

"Good scholarship challenges you to learn while teaching and to teach while learning.  That's why I enjoy working with students in research.  They get to participate in the process of discovery, and I get to participate alongside them.  It's both a teaching and a learning experience for both sides, and it's part of what makes an Assumption education unique." - Dr. Gregory Weiner
