Federal/State Staff


Scott Krawczyk

Scott Krawczyk directs the Office of Federal/State Partnership. Scott earned his PhD in English at the University of Pennsylvania and was a senior faculty member at the United States Military Academy at West Point for eleven years, the last three as chair of its Department of English and Philosophy. He is author of Romantic Literary Families (Palgrave MacMillan, 2009) and is a member of the editorial team for The Collected Works of Anna Letitia Barbauld (under contract with Oxford University Press). At West Point, Scott led many of the academy’s key humanities programs, including a Mellon-funded initiative to connect military academies and liberal arts colleges, a humanities speaker program, and the academy’s writing center, which he set up in 2013. He also founded the Creative Arts Project at West Point, an arts and humanities program that showcases the work of veteran artists and authors reflecting on the experience of war. In the fall of 2012, Scott was involved in an NEH initiative for the service academies to screen Ric Burns’ film Death and the Civil War for military cadets and liberal arts students. In his years in the military, Scott served as a company commander in the 75th Ranger Regiment, an Intelligence Officer, and a speech writer for General Eric Shinseki. Scott retired from the military with the rank of Colonel.
