Teaching Professor Bill Horner

Bill Horner, a teaching professor of political science, has created the Office of Participatory Democracy to lend support to activities which give students the opportunity to apply lessons learned in the classroom to more practical situations.

When it comes to faculty advisers, Bill Horner has been the go-to guy in political science. Every few years, the MU professor says he has been approached by members of a student organization seeking a faculty adviser. Horner says it started about a dozen years ago, when a student asked him to be the faculty adviser for Mizzou’s Model United Nations (UN) organization. A few years later, students participating in Model UN asked Horner if he’d also be willing to be the faculty adviser for the debate team, and he agreed.
