The Political Science Department encourages its students to become involved both in their own educations and in the broader polity. The Political Science Club is one way in which students can take responsibility for themselves as students and citizens. Political Science faculty members serve as advisors to the Club, but the Department neither establishes nor passes upon the Club's policies, public statements, publications, activities or agenda. Students interested in the Club can contact Prof. Gina Keel, the Club's faculty advisor, for more information.
The faculty of the Political Science Department takes pride in recognizing students who have attained academic excellence. We do so by annually bestowing the following honors.
