ORGANIZATIONS

I.  Women’s Caucus for Political Science

Women’s Caucus Website      Women’s Caucus Facebook Page

The Women’s Caucus for Political Science is a non-profit organization, free-standing from but working in conjunction with the APSA, that seeks to improve the status of women in the profession of political science by promoting equal opportunity for women political scientists in employment, promotion and tenure decisions, as well as graduate school admissions and financial aid decisions. WCPS maintains several standing committees that address these concerns.

WCPS meets during the annual meeting of the American Political Science Association; officers and committee chairs report on the progress of their work at this meeting. The Caucus holds reception particularly in Honor of Women of Color on the Wednesday night of the annual meeting and another Caucus reception on the Thursday night. Between meetings, WCPS members maintain contact through a quarterly newsletter (WCPS Quarterly — contact Meredith-Joy Petersheim at mjp36@buffalo.edu), the website, and discussion on the WCPS Facebook page.
