On May 6, Charles W. Dunn, UPK author and distinguished professor in the Robertson School of Government at Regent University, was presented with the Dr. Wolfgang Pindur Award for Distinguished Service in Academia and Practice. This award was given by the Hampton Roads chapter of the American Society of Public Administration in recognition of outstanding service in the area of public administration education. The award honors Dr. Wolfgang Pindur, an academic whose lifelong efforts sought to bridge the worlds of the academic and the practitioner, seeking to continuously increase the effectiveness and efficiency of public services.
Recipients for this award must demonstrate a record of outstanding performance in public service research or education, commitment to linking the academic world to the world of practitioners, dedication to democratic ideals, and dedication to conducting research that will directly benefit the public.
Dunn has edited two books for UPK: The Future of Religion in American Politics, which traces the history of religion in America’s political sphere and explores the issues concerning its continuing relevance, and The Enduring Reagan, which brings together eight prominent scholars to examine the political career and legacy of Ronald Reagan. In addition, this fall UPK will publish The Presidency in the Twenty-first Century which explores the growth of presidential power, investigating its social, political, and economic impact on America’s present and future.
