As Dean of the Calderwood School and Professor of Religion and Humanities at Grove City College, Paul brings his expertise as an academic administrator to the PRM. In his role of academic director, he connects faculty and students with PRM initiatives. Paul is the author or editor of several books on the history of the church and of higher education, including The Oxford Handbook of Presbyterianism; Faith, Freedom, and Higher Education: Historical Analysis and Contemporary Reflections; Princeton in the Nation’s Service: Religious Ideals and Educational Practice, 1868–1928; Church, State, and Public Justice: Five Views; and The New England Watch and Ward Society. He recently facilitated a faculty discussion group on “Faith for the Common Good,” funded by the Lilly Fellows Program in Humanities and the Arts.
“Since its founding, the College has always had the common good as part of its mission,” Paul notes, “and the PRM is yet another extension of that mission.”
