Dolan, professor of political science, was named to serve on the White House Transition Project, a non-partisan organization of American scholars that provides expertise and advice to ensure a stable and smooth transition of presidential power for presidents-elect and new presidential administrations. When the next transitions of power occur in 2020 and 2024 they will work with other scholars on foreign policy and national security issues.
Dr. Chris J. Dolan’s article, Foreign Policy is on the Ballot in 2020; So is American Credibility, was published in the Hill and on MSN Oct. 18. Dolan, professor of political science, noted, “2020 is a good election to feature foreign policy because the voters are choosing between two different value systems.”
