Kenneth Hill has taught generations of political science majors at La Salle for over 40 years, primarily focusing on international politics and foreign policy. He remains in close contact with many of the Department’s prior graduates, especially those who are working in Washington, D. C. where he regularly attends seminars.

He travels each year to the Middle East and has directed students doing independent research on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. He has connected Israeli, Palestinian and La Salle students via a Facebook page. He is currently working on an undergraduate textbook in American Government. And he can still easily defeat most students on the tennis courts.
