SPGS Events

Come join us!

The School of Politics and Global Studies hosts an array of events through the year to engage with students and alumni.  Most events are held on a yearly basis such as Fall Welcome, Night of the Open Door and Homecoming.  The School also holds academic conferences that are based on specific topics of study.  SPGS will also bridge the gap between alumni and students during career panels or guest speaking events.  We encourage you to get involved and come participate in this year’s festivities!
