Dear students, alumni, and friends of Political Science,

Welcome to the new Spring 2023 semester, and to the New Year! As a discipline that attempts to understand political processes and outcomes, we have been busy! We continue to keep our pulse on events and developments around the globe, and across the United States. We continue to excite our students about the relevance of politics in their lives and for the future of democracy, in the United States, and globally. Check our Calendar for the engaging Speaker Series and other events. Also continue to check this website, as we add the most recent news in faculty research activities and student engagement opportunities.

Wishing you a productive and successful semester,
