An Unconventional One Hundred Days

If the first 50 days (and counting) are any indication, the first hundred days of the new administration will be among the most memorable of a generation. Professor Lara Brown returns to North Hill to investigate what has and hasn’t been accomplished since the new administration took over in January. She will compare this with the first hundred days of previous administrations and explore whether 100 days is a useful indicator for judging our nation’s leader.

Lara M. Brown, Ph.D. is an associate professor and serves as program director for the Political Management program in The Graduate School of Political Management at George Washington University. Her research interests include national elections, presidential aspirants, congressional incumbents and political scandals. Dr. Brown serves on the Board of Advisors of The New Agenda, a “pro-woman” organization devoted to improving the lives of women and girls. She is also a regular contributor to U.S. News & World Report’s “Thomas Jefferson Street” blog and previously served as an assistant professor of political science at Villanova University. Prior to returning to academia, she worked as an education policy and strategic planning consultant. She also served as a political appointee in President William J. Clinton’s administration at the U.S. Department of Education in Washington, D.C. In 2001, she earned her Ph.D. in political science from the University of California, Los Angeles.
