UC Professor Attends Conference; Has Article Published

WILLIAMSBURG, KY – University of the Cumberlands (UC) professor Dr. Bruce Hicks attended the Annual Kentucky Political Science Association (KPSA) Conference at Western Kentucky University this past spring, an association that he has been a member of for 20 years.

The Jackson, Georgia native is an associate professor in the History and Political Science Department at UC, where he is in his 22nd year of teaching.

The KPSA Conference is held each year on a different Kentucky college campus. Members of the KSPA meet at these conferences to present and discuss research papers and various political matters.

Hicks has been working on a research paper titled "Revisiting the 2002 U. S. Intelligence Community's Analysis of Iraq's Weapons of Mass Destruction Programs." He plans on presenting this paper at next year’s convention.

Hicks also published an article this past spring that appeared in the Lexington Herald-Leader titled, “Obama haunted by past decisions about Iraq War.” The piece talks about President Obama’s decisions in regards to the war in Libya.

Located in Williamsburg, KY, University of the Cumberlands is an institution of regional distinction, which currently offers four undergraduate degrees in more than 40 major fields of study; nine pre-professional programs; seven graduate degrees, including a doctorate and six master’s degrees; certifications in education; and online programs.
