Welcome Back! Heading link
Hello, and welcome back to UIC for Fall of 2022. We are all very happy to be teaching live and in person for almost all our courses. There will be a lot of things going on in the Political Science Department this semester.
Our two seminar rooms, BSB 1115 and 1171, have been thoroughly upgraded with new state-of-the-art audiovisual gear. Both rooms have new projectors and screens, cameras, speakers, and podium computers. This will allow us to use these rooms for hybrid teaching, live and online at the same time, and to use video conferencing for our speakers.
As always, Prof. Alba Alexander is coordinating our departmental speaker series. She has arranged some fantastic speakers for the Fall semester. All talks will be from 11 to noon on Zoom.
Our nationally-ranked Mock Trial team will be holding tryouts this semester as usual. Team members will learn from practicing attorneys, led by the instructor and coach of the team, Attorney Ryan Nolte, one of our distinguished graduates who recently left the Cook County Public Defenders’ Office, where he had been for ten years, to join a large civil litigation firm. Watch for the flyers around the department!
Our leadership team is always ready to help students. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or need our help.
Best wishes for a great Fall semester!
Evan McKenzie – Department Head
