The Griffin Policy Forums are hosted twice yearly by the Robert and Marjorie Griffin Endowed Chair in American Government, the College of Humanities and Social and Behavioral Sciences, and the Department of Political Science at Central Michigan University.

About the Griffin Endowed Chair

The Griffin Endowed Chair in American Government at Central Michigan University was established through generous gifts from alumni, faculty and friends of the university. It provides continuing support to fund the salary and associated costs of a government and public policy expert to serve as a faculty member in the Political Science department and to host twice yearly forums addressing public policy issues.
The endowment is named to recognize the significant public service and contributions of distinguished CMU alumni Robert P. and Marjorie Griffin. Robert Griffin, '47, is a former U.S. Senator, and his wife, Marjorie, '44, is a former Clarke Historical Library board member.
