Northwood University Florida President Dr. Tom Duncan, shared expertise with both South Florida and national CBS and NBC television affiliates this past week in four separate interviews in which he shed light on Governor Mitt Romney's "Dear Daughter" ad, the influence of "Super Pac" money in the political process, the ramifications of voter fraud and how it can be prevented, and more.

"I am pleased that the greater Palm Beach media look to Northwood University for expertise on political, business, economic, and other topics of interest in our region," noted President Duncan. "We want Northwood University-Florida to be the "go to" place in our region for faculty and staff expertise on news features that are critical to Florida and the nation." Duncan continued, "Thankfully, the Palm Beach television media look to Northwood-Florida first when they want prompt, informed opinion and analysis on important news events."

"Thanks so much to Dr. Duncan and other staff and faculty members for so readily agreeing to share their expertise," said Susan McCreery Florida's Director of Public Relations. "Thanks to them, we are serving as a valuable community resource," she said.

Recently appointed Northwood Florida President in July, Duncan has become recognized as a valued political commentator for CBS, ABC, NBC and FOX television affiliates in the Palm Beach area. He served as a senior staff member to Missouri Governor John Ashcroft in education and policy management, as well as Director of the Missouri Division of Professional Registration, from 1985-1992. Prior to his government service, he was an assistant professor of government and public administration at Evangel College (now Evangel University) in Springfield, Missouri from 1980-1984. He later served colleges and universities in California, Arizona, and Ohio in faculty and administrative capacities.

Duncan earned his PhD. in higher education from the University of Arizona in 2005; an M.A. in political science from the University of Missouri-Columbia in 1979; his B.A. in government from Evangel College in 1975; and a course of study in preparation for Anglican ordination with the Anglican Mission in the Americas in South Carolina. In addition to his higher education service, Duncan has remained active as a chaplain and pastor in religious communities in California, Arizona, Missouri and Wisconsin.
