The Undergraduate Political Science Association is affiliated with the Political Science Department at University of Michigan. As a non-partisan organization, UPSA is dedicated to acting as a liason between undergraduate students and the Political Science Department. Our purpose is to join all students at the University who have an interest in political science and give them a place and outlet for engaging in activities associated with this interest. We service all undergraduate students with an interest in politics in hope to involve, educate, and engage them in matters concerning the field of political science. We offer regularly scheduled meetings, awesome events for polisci majors, the Walker Conference, and much more!
UPSA offers leadership and organizational experience to motivated undergraduate students, and looks to facilitate a better understanding of politics and political issues on campus. Interested in current political science issues, getting emails about various on and off campus activities and internships, or becoming more familiar with departmental professors? Get involved today!
