Dinesh D'Souza, President, The King's College
In the fall of 2010, Dinesh D’Souza was named the President of The King’s College, a Christian College located in New York City. The mission of The King’s College is to transform society by educating students so that they are prepared to shape and lead the nation’s strategic institutions. D’Souza brings to King’s a distinguished 25-year career as a writer and scholar. A former policy analyst in the Reagan White House, D’Souza also served as an Olin Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute as well as a Rishwain Scholar at the Hoover Institution at Stanford. Called one of the “top young public-policy makers in the country” by Investor’s Business Daily, D’Souza quickly became a major influence on public policy through his writings. Illiberal Education, his first book, publicized the phenomenon of political correctness in America’s colleges and universities and was on the best-seller list for 15 weeks. Subsequent best-sellers include Ronald Reagan: How an Ordinary Man Became an Extraordinary Leader, The Virtue of Prosperity, What’s So Great About America, Letters to a Young Conservative, What’s So Great About Christianity, and The Roots of Obama’s Rage. His latest book, Godforsaken, released in February 2012, addresses the problem of evil and suffering. A prolific writer, persuasive debater, and sought-after speaker, D’Souza has been named one of America’s most influential conservative thinkers by The New York Times.
