CU-Boulder announces finalists for Visiting Scholar in Conservative Thought and Policy

The University of Colorado Boulder today announced five finalists for Visiting Scholar in Conservative Thought and Policy. Within the next five weeks, four of the finalists will make one-day campus visits during which they will hold public forums.

For several months, an advisory committee has been working to identify finalists. The committee has sought “highly visible” scholars who are “deeply engaged in either the analytical scholarship or practice of conservative thinking and policymaking or both.”

The potential visiting scholars named this year could serve either in 2014-15 or in subsequent school years. The college is streamlining the search process to save resources.

The four new finalists are Terry L. Anderson, president of the Property and Environment Research Center and senior fellow of the Hoover Institution; Bradley J. Birzer, Russell Amos Kirk Chair in American Studies and professor of history at Hillsdale College; Arthur Herman, author of Gandhi and Churchill: The Epic Rivalry That Destroyed an Empire and Forged Our Age; and Gary D. Libecap, professor of corporate environmental management at the Bren School of Environmental Science and Management and Department of Economics at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Ron Haskins, who was named a finalist for the position last year, is again a finalist but will not be brought to campus again this year.

“The College of Arts and Sciences is again pleased that the committee has chosen an outstanding set of candidates,” said Steven Leigh, dean of the college. “Their scholarly accomplishments will add significant strengths to our campus.”

Each finalist will visit campus for a day, during which the finalist will meet privately with the search committee, the chancellor, provost and dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. Each will also teach a class—but that activity will not be open to the media.
