Stratton to guide Stover Scholars, commence semester-long project
Dr. Lawrence Stratton, Visiting Stover Constitutional Fellow, will commence a semester-long research project with the Stover Scholars at Waynesburg University beginning Monday, Jan. 18. Stratton will remain on campus to direct the Stover Scholars and the research project through Friday, Jan. 22.
With the guidance of Dr. Stratton, the Scholars will compare and contrast contemporary ideologies of constitutional interpretation with the ideologies of the Founders and Framers of the Constitution. Stratton will return toward the end of the semester to lead in-depth discussions on the results of the research.
The Stover Center for Constitutional Studies and Moral Leadership at Waynesburg University seeks a renewal of American politics, business and culture based upon the values and principles of the Constitution of the United States. For that reason, the Stover Center develops leaders who embrace the moral and constitutional principles that guided the Founding Fathers. The Stover Scholars Program was initiated in the fall of 2007 by Dr. W. Robert Stover.
Stratton holds an undergraduate degree in economics from the University of Pennsylvania, Wharton School, a Juris Doctorate from Georgetown University and a Ph.D. in Christian Ethics from the Princeton Theological Seminary. Stratton has taught politics, ethics, law and religion, among other subject areas at Princeton University, the Georgetown Law Center, the University of Pennsylvania and Pepperdine University. He has co-authored several books and numerous articles on the subjects of church, faith, law, religion and the Constitution, among other topics.
