Dr. Lisa Parshall, professor of political science at Daemen College, was one of five faculty selected as an inaugural Richard P. Nathan Public Policy Fellow at the Rockefeller Institute of Government in Albany. During the one-year fellowship, she is partnering with nationally known Rockefeller Institute staff to research pressing public policy issues in education, state and local government administration, and economic opportunity.
Parshall is also the recipient of a grant from the Howard J. Samuels Center for State and City Policy to fund her research on local government reform. In addition, she will participate in an interdisciplinary summer workshop, “The Constitutional History of Anglo-American Empire,” being sponsored by the Institute for Constitutional History and the Stanford Constitutional Law Center.
At Daemen, Parshall serves as pre-law advisor and she is a member of the Northeastern Association of Pre-Law Advisors.
Author and co-author of several law review articles, Parshall’s book, “Reforming the Presidential Nominating Process: Front-Loading’s Consequences and the National Primary Solution,” was recently published.
She earned a doctorate and a master’s degree in political science, both from the University at Buffalo, and a bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.
