This is a great opportunity to Campbellsville University and for our faculty and students. We look forward to hosting the March 2-3, 2012 KPSA conference, and detailed planning and preparation are already under way."
Chowning teaches political science classes periodically at CU and was the founder of Campbellsville University's Kentucky Heartland Institute on Public Policy, an organization that facilitates public policy study and issues debate, while encouraging the involvement of Christian leaders in the public and civic arenas.
He has also been appointed to a committee on equity to review the status of diversity and equity in Kentucky's educational system.

Dr. Shawn Williams and Max Wise, both assistant professors of political science, attended the conference along with a student, Zachary Meyers of Campbellsville, a political science major.
Wise and Williams served as discussants in a session each - making comments on, and asking questions about, student papers presented in the respective sessions. The three CU representatives also served on a committee to select the outstanding paper by undergraduates students.
