Thomas Appointed Fellow at Foley Institute

"One of the world's leading scholars on interest groups. He has published extensively in the areas of interest groups, as well as Western, Alaska, Latin American, and comparative politics."

Political Science faculty Clive Thomas has been appointed as the first Senior Fellow at the Thomas S. Foley Institute for Public Policy & Public Service at Washington State University in Pullman, Washington. Thomas will conduct research and share knowledge with WSU colleagues and students. An article in the institute’s newsletter calls Thomas, "one of the world’s leading scholars on interest groups. He has published extensively in the areas of interest groups, as well as Western, Alaska, Latin American, and comparative politics."

Named to honor Tom Foley’s more than 30 years of public service to both state and nation and as the 49th Speaker of the House of Representatives, the Foley Institute fosters civic education, public service, and public policy research in a nonpartisan, cross-disciplinary setting. It has a threefold mission at WSU that covers public affairs programming and education, public policy research and Congressional studies, and student involvement in public policy and public service.
