Joe Postell, an assistant professor of political science at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, writes and speaks about the nation conceived by America’s founders as a visiting fellow at The Heritage Foundation.

From 2007 to 2010, Postell was assistant director of Heritage’s B. Kenneth Simon Center for Principles and Politics (then called the Simon Center for American Studies). His published articles include examinations of the Bill of Rights and regulation during the period of the American founding. In recent months, he has focused his studies on the growth and power of administrative agencies.

Postell received his doctorate in political thought and political philosophy from the University of Dallas, where he also received his master’s degree in politics. His dissertation was on administrative law and American public policy. He taught political science at the university before joining Heritage.
