SUNY Oneonta's annual Undergraduate Political Science Conference is organized by the college's Political Science Club and features student presenters and discussants from colleges and universities throughout New York state and beyond.
The conference provides a chance for highly motivated Political Science students from many institutions to share questions, information and insights about various aspects of political science. Student organizers gain leadership experience, network with peers from other schools, and engage in intellectual debate in a professional conference setting.
The conference features a keynote speaker each year. Past speakers have included Peter Ennis, associate professor in the Department of Government and executive director of the Roper Center for Public Opinion Research at Cornell University; Peter Balakian, poet, writer and professor of humanities at Colgate University; and Kristi Andersen, professor of political science at the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, Syracuse University, among others.
