Faculty

Dan Koev, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor, Government, History & Criminal Justice

Bio

Prior to joining the faculty at Regent University, Dr. Koev was a graduate instructor at the University of Illinois and a researcher at the Cato Institute. He has been honored with many teaching awards and was named four times to University of Illinois List of Teachers Ranked Excellent.  His research interests include religious liberty and church-state relations, and ethnic and nationalist politics.


Koev is recognized for working closely with his students to help them grow and accomplish their educational and career goals. He says, “I emphasize the cultivation of moral virtue and transferrable skills — critical thinking, writing, research design principles — that will serve students well regardless of the path they choose in life. I seek to cultivate these values and skills by offering extensive constructive feedback on student work, by engaging in one-on-one communication and developing strong relationships. Few things in life are as rewarding as seeing the progress my students make over time as both thinkers and people.”


Koev was born in Yambol, Bulgaria, and emigrated to the United States as a child. He became a naturalized American citizen in 2005. He is married with two children and enjoys reading, playing and watching soccer, cooking and spending time with his family.
