Political Science Student Association

The Political Science Students Association (PSSA) is an active and dynamic student organization with both internal and external roles. It seeks to unify students and faculty within the Political Science Department, while also fostering non-partisan political awareness throughout the Santa Clara University community.

The PSSA sponsors a variety of events during the year to promote unity, involvement, and dialogue among faculty and students, including “Pictionary with the Profs" and "Croquet with the Profs." The PSSA maintains an active role within the department, often voicing the interests of students to the faculty. A PSSA representative attends all department faculty meetings.

Santa Clara University is a campus rich in diverse political opinion. The PSSA is a non-partisan organization that aims to promote political thought and awareness by empowering students and providing educational resources.

The Political Science Students Association meets once a week in the Arts & Sciences building. For more information, check out the PSSA Facebook group.
