Today, the Texas Public Policy Foundation announced that Dr. Carol Swain, highly accomplished professor formerly at Vanderbilt University and Princeton University, has joined the Foundation as Distinguished Senior Fellow for Constitutional Studies. Swain has extensive experience in American politics, race relations, and immigration reform, having held political appointments in the Bush, Obama, and Trump administrations. In 2011, she founded the Be The People Project to educate Americans about conservative values and principles. Swain is the author of 11 books and is regularly published in major media outlets, as well as being featured in documentaries and in television appearances. 

“We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Carol Swain as our Distinguished Senior Fellow for Constitutional Studies,” said Kevin Roberts, CEO of TPPF. “She will provide a wealth of experience and institutional knowledge to our education team, battling the toxic ideology of CRT and elevating the importance of civics education, just as she did on the 1776 commission.” 

“There are some matches made in heaven,” said Dr. Swain. “My fellowship with TPPF is one of them.  For me, this opportunity comes at an auspicious time in my life and the life of our nation. We are teetering on the edge of a precipice. TPPF is working overtime for the values and principles that undergird our nation.  I eagerly join forces with them as I embrace the slogan, ‘Don’t mess with Texas.’”
