After receiving a series of grants, Bradley Murg, assistant professor of political science and director of SPU’s Global Development Studies program helped established a new nongovernmental organization “the Greater Mekong Research Center.”
This center is already becoming a leading voice in Cambodian media and academic and policy circles on questions of democratization, human rights protection, and economic development. In May 2017, students named Murg the 2017 Professor of the Year.
