AgBioResearch is pleased to welcome a new affiliated faculty member.

Richard Hula, professor and chairperson of the Department of Political Science, became affiliated with the MAES in May. His work will include development of a set of questions around the issue of brownfield redevelopment in Michigan. These questions will probe public awareness and attitudes toward contamination and redevelopment efforts in the state and will be included in the annual State of the State survey. Survey results will be used to assess current public perspectives and positions on the issue and will be compared with the results of a similar survey conducted five years ago.

Before coming to MSU in 1991, Hula taught at the University of Texas at Dallas and the University of Maryland. His current research and teaching interests focus on urban politics and policy. He has projects exploring state/local environmental policy, the impact of faith-based organizations on social service delivery and state-level interventions into local policy arenas. Hula received his doctorate in from Northwestern University in 1975.
