APSAlogoCall for Nominations

On April 9, 2016, the APSA Council approved the creation of two new committees: the Committee on the Status of Graduate Students in the Profession and the Committee on the Status of Contingent Faculty in the Profession. Submit any comments or nominations by June 15, 2016.

  • Status Committee on Contingent Faculty – Submit Your Nomination
    The goal of this Status Committee is to bring attention to issues that impact contingent faculty in the discipline and to determine how APSA can best engage and support them. APSA is now working to identify and appoint members to this newly formed Committee on the Status of Contingent Faculty in the Profession. Members appointed to the Committee should have an interest in highlighting and addressing the professional issues facing non-tenure-track faculty in the discipline.
  • Status Committee on Graduate Students – Submit Your Nomination
    The goal of this Status Committee is to bring attention to issues and concerns affecting PhD students in the discipline and to provide input to the APSA council and staff on policies and programs to effectively engage and support them. APSA is now working to identify and appoint members to this newly formed Committee on the Status of Graduate Students in the Profession. APSA is looking to appoint PhD students, both pre-comps and post-comps, who are concerned with the professional issues and opportunities facing PhD students in political science. APSA plans to appoint six members of this committee for two year terms.

Nominations and comments are due June 15, 2016. Learn more about Status Committees.
