Daniel Stroup has taught at Centre College since 1976 and was named the Lively Professor of Government and Law in 2005.

Stroup's teaching and research interests encompass American political history, the judicial process, the legislative process, and The Civil Rights Movement in America. Along with Professor Bill Garriott, Stroup teaches a unique government course that simulates the U.S. Congress. Centre students have the opportunity to play the roles of congressmen in the House of Representatives, cabinet members, lobbyists or journalists, and one student portrays the President. Stroup also teaches a seminar on the history of The Civil Rights Movement.

Stroup has published articles in journals including Valparaiso Law Review and PS: Political Science and Politics, as well as a segment of The Kentucky Encyclopedia.

Stroup graduated magna cum laude from the University of Dayton (B.A.) and holds M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in government from the University of Virginia.

In the greater Danville community, he has been active in the parents association of the Danville Montessori School, and Citizens Concerned for Human Relations, a local group that focuses on race relations.
