My name is Christopher Olds. I am an interdisciplinary social scientist. My educational background includes a Ph.D. in Political Science at Texas A&M University, as well as completed B.A. degrees in Political Science (with Honors) and History from the University of California San Diego.
Effective fall 2023, I have been tenured and promoted to associate professor rank as faculty in political science, public administration & public policy at a university in Kansas called Fort Hays State University. The department of my appointment is Communication Studies, Law, and Political Science (previously known as the Department of Political Science prior to a university reorganization). I have contributed meaningful teaching, research, and service to Fort Hays State University since my initial appointment in August of 2018. This website serves as a professional portfolio with a CV, publications, and prior course syllabi.
I am interested in new opportunities and techniques to better serve the needs of students from diverse backgrounds. Feel free to get in touch with me using the information provided on the "Contact Me" page. Thanks!
