Women in Political Science

WIPS (Women in Political Science) is an informal association committed to helping students and faculty who are women or minorities succeed in the discipline. The key goals of this group are to promote and publicize research by women in political science, address obstacles that women and minorities face in pursuing careers in the discipline, and enhance networking between female faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students. In order to achieve these goals, WIPS will offer a number of events each semester, including: speaker series featuring research presentations by prominent female scholars, brownbag series highlighting recent research on gendered career issues, and informal social gatherings between women at different levels in the department. The WIPS group represents the political science department’s commitment to addressing issues related to gender diversity.
