Distinguished Professor Richard L. McCormick is professor of history and higher education at Rutgers University. His historical research and writing focus on the political history of the United States, above all, the history of political corruption. Currently he teaches a course on that subject every fall semester, and he is writing a book on the history of political corruption in America from the 17th century to the present. During the spring of 2020, he taught an honors seminar on the history of presidential elections in the United States. The seminar focused equally on a half-dozen historical elections and on the 2020 presidential election then (and now) in progress. The honors students in his course were amazingly good at comparing and contrasting presidential elections and presidents. Prior to resuming his career in teaching and writing history, Professor McCormick served as president of Rutgers from 2002 to 2012.
