Letter from the Chair

I am very pleased to introduce the new format of PoliSci Connection, the magazine for friends and supporters of the University of Minnesota Political Science Department. Until now, PoliSci Connection was a departmental newsletter, capably managed by our undergraduate advisor, Rose Miskowiec. We have upgraded the newsletter to a magazine, now containing professionally written articles about the research and teaching of departmental personnel, as well as in-depth reports on select experiences of Political Science students.
