Ryan Center Office

Faculty Associates

We welcome faculty who support our mission from across the Villanova community to be Ryan Center Faculty Associates.The Ryan Center Faculty Associates are members of the faculty of Villanova University whose scholarly work is related to the mission of the Ryan Center and who support the Ryan Center’s goals of promoting inquiry into the principles and processes of free government and advancing understanding of the responsibilities of statesmen and citizens of constitutional democratic societies. Because they share James Madison’s belief that only a well-instructed people can be permanently free, the Ryan Center Faculty Associates hold that it is part of their responsibility as scholars and teachers to foster in society generally and in their students in particular an appreciation of the moral, political, legal, and philosophical foundations of democratic government.

We organize programming for our faculty associates and extend them priority invitations to other Center-hosted events. We also encourage mentoring relationships between our faculty associates and students. For more information on becoming a Faculty Associate, please contact Brian Satterfield.
