By joining the PHC faculty in fall of 2008, Dr. Guliuzza left a tenured position as Professor of Political Science and Chair of the Department at Weber State University.
Dr. Guliuzza is a well-known scholar in the field of government. An expert in Constitutional Law, he has published widely on the first amendment (including the book, Over the Wall: Protecting Religious Expression in the Public Square), the separation of church and state, and the role of Christians in political activism.
Dr. Guliuzza received the "John S. Hinckley Award" as the outstanding faculty member at WSU (2003). He was named "Utah Professor of the Year" by the Carnegie Foundation (2003). He has been recognized four times by the American Political Science Association for "Outstanding Teaching in Political Science" (2000, 2003, 2004, and 2008).
He is the current Chair of the Pre-Law Advisors' National Council and is on the executive boards of the American Mock Trial Association and the American Collegiate Moot Court Associations. A successful coach at Weber State, his teams finished in the top ten at national tournaments a dozen times. He coached more than 60 students who were either All-Americans or All-Regional competitors. He has also taught at Wheaton College, the University of Minnesota, and Vassar.
Beyond his academic accomplishments, Dr. Guliuzza has extensive practical political experience. He was vice-chairman of the Utah Republican Party and ran for election to the United States Senate, though he was defeated in the primary by Orrin Hatch. At PHC, he advises students who plan to attend law school. In addition to coaching moot court and mock trial, he teaches classes at all levels for the Government major.
