Why MPSA?

I feel privileged to be a member of the Midwest Political Science Association (MPSA), whose commitment to advancing the frontiers of research, as well as preparing young researchers remains invaluable.

Given its track record, MPSA will offer me the leverage to hone my research skills and connect with scholars across the world. This will afford me the opportunity to contribute to the discipline of Political Science at a global stage.

PROFESSIONAL LEVEL – RETIREE

I attended my first MPSA meeting in April 1973 during my first spring at Bradley University, and have attended and/or participated in every meeting since then except for 2012 due to a professional conflict. I have always found numerous panels of interest, enjoy connecting with colleagues (especially as the only political theorist at BU), and find the book exhibits very useful. My overall experience with MPSA has always been positive and Meegan Isenhour is wonderful about answering any procedural questions or concerns I might have. I can't imagine not belonging to and participating in MPSA.

PROFESSIONAL LEVEL – GRADUATE STUDENT

Throughout the early stages of my academic career, MPSA has consistently provided valuable networking opportunities. Each year I look forward to MPSA as an opportunity to connect with colleagues at other institutions and to start building new connections.
