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 Department of Political Science and Public Administration​ and to host twice yearly forums addressing public policy issues. The Griffin endowment was named to recognize the significant public service of distinguished CMU alumni Senator Robert P. Griffin, '47​, and Marjorie Griffin, '44.
