Faculty

Whether right out of grad school or after some years in the profession, IWU professors moved to the head of the class. Was it a passion for sharing the field of their dreams? Was it a divine prompting to make students their business? Or were they looking for a place where they could teach their profession and still share a profession of faith? No doubt it was all of these.

We invite you to come to campus and ask students what they think.

Interests

Dr. Conrad’s primary interest is in the field of political theory; specifically, exploring the compatibility of ancient and modern political theories with biblical principles. To that end, his research tends to be more qualitative than quantitative.

His secondary interest is in the area of technology. He has recently begun to examine the intersection between technology and politics to understand how technology either contributes to or detracts from the good political life.
