Stephen J. Stambough, professor of political science, and associate professors Matthew G. Jarvis, Valerie R. O'Regan and Mark A. Redhead will be speaking at the second annual Pi Sigma Alpha Research Symposium. Also presenting are graduate political science majors Frank Driscoll, Stacy Fox and Allan Misje, and undergrad Jestin Samson.
“Anyone who attends the symposium will have the opportunity to learn about current research in the field of political science being conducted by students and faculty members at CSUF,” said Sarah A. Hill, assistant professor of political science, adviser for Pi Sigma Alpha, the university’s political science student honor society, and a symposium organizer. “There will be a diverse offering of topics, including political theory, American politics and international politics.”
The full cost of the symposium is being underwritten by a $600 grant from the national Pi Sigma Alpha organization. CSUF’s symposium proposal was among those selected from the 130 chapter proposals submitted for funding.
