Dr. Zoetewey came to Hope in 1966, bringing his special interest in the Supreme Court, parties, elections, and Congress. Dr. Zoetewey has gathered his knowledge and teaching experience from time spent at the University of Colorado, Calvin College, Grand Valley State University, and Hope College. He has continued to expand his experiences through the National Endowment for the Humanities and Project '87 summer study awards used on university campuses -- Virginia, Georgia, Iowa, Illinois at Chicago, Duke, Rutgers -- around the country.
These awards enhanced Dr. Zoetewey's interest in freedom of religion, religion and politics, the right to privacy, and the framing of the U.S. Constitution. He authored the instructor's manual for American Government: Essentials and Perspectives, and also was one of the co-authors for the 3rd edition of the textbook. The Zoetewey family is very involved in activities at Faith Christian Reformed Church, where Dr. Zoetewey serves on the consistory.
Dr. Zoetewey retired from the department in June of 2007.
