AU Professor of Government & International Affairs Presents Research at Yale

In late March, Dr. Joel Johnson, Sanford Health Peter Schotten Distinguished Professor of Government & International Affairs and Augustana University’s soon-to-be interim provost, was one of only a few Americans asked to serve as a panelist at a Humboldt-Kolleg workshop at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut.

Inspired by Lutheran scholarly tradition and the liberal arts, Augustana provides an education of enduring worth that challenges the intellect, fosters integrity and integrates faith with learning and service in a diverse world.
