OBU announced the hiring of Dr. Jonathan Ashbach as assistant professor of political science. Ashbach comes to OBU from Baylor University, officially joining the faculty in July ahead of the fall 2021 semester.
He earned a Bachelor of Arts in politics and economics from Humboldt State University, a Master of Arts in Christian apologetics from Biola University, a Master of Arts in politics from Hillsdale College, and a Ph.D. in politics also from Hillsdale. He most recently taught at Baylor University before coming to OBU, teaching both American national government and American Constitutional development.
OBU Provost Dr. Susan DeWoody looks forward to Ashbach joining the faculty and is grateful for the knowledge and expertise he brings.
“We are excited to welcome Dr. Ashbach to Bison Hill,” she said. “He brings great energy and enthusiasm to the role, coupled with his desire to integrate faith with political thought. We know his scholarly work and teaching experience at Baylor and Hillsdale College will add to the political science department at OBU.”
