The academic and professional interests of Dr. Caleb Verbois lie with the connections between the American Founding and contemporary politics. He is particularly interested in theoretical and practical separation of power between the Executive, Congress, and the Courts, as well as federal and state power struggles. His research focuses on presidential power in foreign affairs, specifically studying President Bush’s actions in the War on Terror and comparing it to the constitutional debates over presidential power and the historical practice of foreign policy by prior executives. After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science at Oglethorpe University (summa cum laude), Dr. Verbois studied as a Witherspoon Fellow in Washington, D.C. He earned a master’s degree and Doctor of Philosophy in political science at the University of Virginia. He teaches American Politics at Grove City College. A native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, he resides in Grove City, Pennsylvania, with his wife, Rachel, and their daughter, Katie.
