Daniel Palazzolo is a Professor of Political Science, Associate Dean, and Co-Director of the John Marshall Center for the International Study of Statesmanship at the University of Richmond. His current research examines coalition building in Congress in an era of partisan polarization. Specifically, he studies how much potential exists for bipartisanship or other forms of cooperation across party lines in the context of re-emergent partisanship, why some issues still cut across party lines or fail to evoke partisan divisions, and how the politics of these issues differ from the issues that fit more neatly into party government in Congress.
Professor Palazzolo is a JMC faculty partner.

He specializes in leadership ethics and moral psychology. A philosopher with grounding in psychology, Dr. Price focuses his teaching and research interests on applied ethics. In addition to teaching leadership ethics, he has taught business ethics, medical ethics, and contemporary moral issues. His book, Leadership Ethics: An Introduction, focuses on everyday leadership and provides a moral analysis of the reasons leaders give for breaking the rules and his work has been published in Business Ethics Quarterly, Leadership Quarterly, A Quest for a General Theory of Leadership, Encyclopedia of Leadership, Journal of Value Inquiry, Journal of Political Philosophy, The Leadership and Organization Development Journal and American Philosophical Quarterly.

The John Marshall International Center for the Study of Statesmanship in the University of Richmond’s Jepson School of Leadership Studies hosts conferences and speakers to discuss leadership and provide diverse intellectual perspectives. The center is named in honor of Richmond’s famous citizen, John Marshall. Marshall is best known for his long tenure as Chief Justice of the United States from 1801-1835. He also served as United States Secretary of State from 1800-1801 and briefly as a member of the United States House of Representatives from 1799-1800. “It is entirely fitting that this program honor the memory of Richmond’s famous citizen, John Marshall,” says Gary L. McDowell, one of the original co-directors of the Marshall Center, “In every role, one sees his firm commitment to responsible decision-making by political leaders that lay at the foundation of his understanding of the rule of law and modern constitutionalism.”
