Since February 2018, C. Damien Arthur has been the Distinguished Scholar and Director of the Marshall University Center for Consumer Law and Education (CCLE), a Consumer Law, Policy, and Education partnership with the WVU College of Law. From 2012 to 2014, he was an Assistant Professor of Political Science at West Virginia State University. Since 2014, he has been an Assistant Professor of Public Administration and Policy at Marshall University. At MU, he currently directs the Community-Based Learning program (CBL), and serves as the Co-Director of the CORTEX Center in the Center for Teaching and Learning.

He has published peer-reviewed books and refereed journal articles in his discipline. Nearly all of his publications deal with some aspect of public leadership. The articles were published in some of the leading journals of his specific discipline. Moreover, he has taught dozens of university courses, both at the undergraduate and graduate level—on Grant Writing, Public Administration, and public money management as well as Nonprofit Management, State & Local Politics, and Public Policy and Empirical Analysis. His research and teaching have won numerous awards and grants.

He has served, and continues to serve, on community boards and faculty committees that deal with large budgets, fiduciary matters, and governance and accountability issues. Arthur was elected by his peers to represent them in the Faculty Senate and appointed to posts of responsibility by the Presidents of two universities. He has been solving complex problems for nearly ten years, using critical and innovative thinking, decision models, predictive analytics, qualitative research and analysis, and econometric forecasting. He has proven successes in analyzing and synthesizing complex material while designing and completing intricate projects independently and with teams.
