Professor Andrew Murphy (2014-2017) has fond memories of many wonderful seminar discussions with the fellows: at first, continuing the focus on democracy and democratization inherited from Professor Dennis Bathory's time at the helm, and later introducing a new focus on violence and non-Violence. During his time as director, the year-end conference expanded to involve student poster presentations to foster more extensive dialogue and discussion of student research projects. The Gardner program remains a highlight of his time at Rutgers, and he always enjoys hearing from former fellows.
