PSSULogoOur Mission:
The Political Science Student Union is an organization founded here on UIC some two years ago of and by the Political Science Student. We aim to create an environment in which the poli. sci. student can facilitate stimulating conversation on issues that matter to us. We wish to bolster the political science students in their undergraduate endeavors, and provide resources. Ultimately, the Political Science Student Union is here to cater to the Political Science Student. 

PSSU Goals:
We wish to provide various resources. We provide info sessions where students can learn more about a Political Science Degree. We host workshops where students may develop themselves professionally, and host events in which we bring forth various outlets of political depth, i.e. we hosted a Town Hall with U.S Representative Tammy Duckworth, and facilitated a debate between five different organizations from across the political spectrum (College Democrats, College Republicans, Turning Point, Platypus, Students for Progressive issues).
