[March 10, 2014]  Silas McCormick has been appointed as an assistant professor of law and government at Lincoln Christian University, in addition to his primary responsibilities as director of institutional effectiveness and assistant university counsel. McCormick has held the director and counsel positions since 2012; his faculty rank became effective Jan. 1.

McCormick joined LCU in 2010 as an adjunct instructor in American government. He holds a bachelor's degree in Christian education from LCU (2001), a master's in education, a doctorate from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (2003, 2007) and a Juris Doctorate from Ohio State University's Moritz College of Law (2009).

His appointment to the rank of assistant professor was the result of a recommendation process initiated by a committee of his peers. The provost and dean of the school also have an opportunity to review requests of individuals for faculty appointment and endorse the committee recommendation, as happened in the case of Dr. McCormick, according to Cathy Kissling, LCU associate director of academic services.

"McCormick was then recommended for faculty appointment by the peer review committee to the president for his endorsement," Kissling said. "Appointment to faculty rank is an honor."
