Ronald E. Brown is an associate professor of Political Science, Wayne State University. He regularly teaches introductory to American Government courses, Religion and Politics, and Detroit Politics to predominantly undergraduate students. Professor Brown participates in dinner and dialogue sessions with Detroit voters via Citizen Detroit, a non-profit organization. While the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the in-person dinner sessions, the goal is to resume these vital citizen activities. Professor Brown’s collaborative national survey research projects with R. Khari Brown explore the associative relationships between civil-religious discourse, public policy attitudes, and political participation.
