The California State Senate honored Chapman University author and Professor of Political Science Lori Cox Han with a Senate Resolution in recognition of her becoming the university’s inaugural holder of the Doy B. Henley Endowed Chair in American Presidential Studies.

In addition, the resolution jointly sponsored by State Senators Ben Allen and Tom Umberg pays tribute to Han’s teaching, research, publications and dedication to promoting “the ideals of civil discourse and public service in government.”

“I am deeply honored and humbled by this recognition, especially since I am a native Californian,” said Han.

A multimillion-dollar gift from Emeritus Chairman of the Board Doy B. Henley created the endowed chair within Wilkinson College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences in 2021.

In addition to studying the presidency and political leadership, Han has published widely on women in politics. Among her publications are “In It to Win: Electing Madam President” and “Madam President? Gender and Politics on the Road to the White House,” co-edited with Caroline Heldman.
