“To think that in such a place I led such a life.” Faculty Profile: Professor Philip Russo
For the past 37 years, a couple of generations of Miami students benefited from their interaction with Dr. Phil Russo, Professor of Political Science, and Director of the Center for Public Management and Regional Affairs (CPMRA). While he published many articles, book chapters, research reports, and has been the Principal Investigator or Co-Principal Investigator for over 30 external grant/contracts from various federal, state, local, and private sources totaling over $5 million, he is especially recognized as a dynamic teacher and impactful mentor. Though this “stalwart” of Harrison Hall and the Miami community officially retired this past June, he’s still teaching his Public Administration capstone course and directing the CPMRA part-time as part of the university’s unique program to keep some of their best senior faculty connected to Miami in their retirement. That his retirement won’t simply consist of golf and relaxation won’t surprise anyone. Russo’s professional life has been one of service to his undergraduate and graduate students and many local governments around the state.
