Founded in 2015 by the endowment in honor of Professor L.E. Meador, the Drury University Meador Center for Politics and Citizenship is dedicated to the academic inquiry of politics and citizenship in the modern world. The work of the Meador Center is to inspire and engage Drury University students and faculty to work toward that “more democratic and more hopeful world” of which Professor Meador spoke.
The L.E. Meador Center for Politics and Citizenship also seeks to connect the community of scholars at Drury University with the city, state, national, and global communities which Drury and its scholars inhabit.
