Web pages for most of my courses are indexed at World Politics Courses at Marymount, except for the research design course (POL 250) which is here. The blog chronicling student engagement in events on and off campus is hereI have occasionally taken classes on one-week study abroad trips as part of semester-long courses, including to Korea, the United Arab EmiratesFrance, and Vietnam

In spring 2018 I have office hours Mondays and Thursdays, 10-11:45 (on each of those days that classes are scheduled). At those times please feel free to come by my office without an appointment. Occasionally during times of peak demand I may also have office hours on a Tuesday or Friday, 10-3, by appointmentTo see the schedule and make an appointment use this calendar. (You must be logged in to gmail or Marymount email. Scroll to the right to see future weeks.) All meetings are in my office, Ireton G108. If you do not make an appointment you are welcome to drop by but I cannot promise that I will be there. If you make an appointment but then cannot make it to that appointment, please email me to let me know. Any student who makes, and then misses, three or more appointments without cancelling them in advance will be permanently banned from making future appointments.  

Feel free to email me at crector@marymount.edu with questions.

In general I advise students in the politics major interested in international affairs, and students in the international studies minor
