Faculty Senate President
Dr. David Ramsey, associate professor of government and Faculty Senate president, serves as the faculty representative for the Board. Ramsey teaches constitutional law and political philosophy for the UWF Department of Government. His first book, “Antitrust and the Supreme Court,” examines the Supreme Court’s role in balancing the contentions of the political branches, business community, enforcement agencies and advocates of various schools of economic thought. He is currently working on preparing a digital edition of the papers of Roger B. Taney, fifth Chief Justice of the Supreme Court from 1836 to 1864, who authored several consequential opinions that played an important role in developing American law. This will be the first scholarly edition of Taney’s papers to be published in print or digital format.
Ramsey earned a bachelor’s degree in government and English from Berry College, a master’s degree in liberal arts from St. John’s College and a doctorate in political science from Baylor University.
