Politics, Groups, and Identities Journal
Politics, Groups, and Identities (PGI), a peer-reviewed journal of the Western Political Science Association, features the best scholarship on social groups, exploring the politics of gender, race, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, class and other dimensions of identity and structural disadvantage. The journal publishes work across all subfields of political science, as well as the social sciences and humanities more generally. The journal publishes research on any country or region of the world, including work that is global or international in scope as well as work that is national or local, or examines connections between these levels. Politics, Groups, and Identities is interdisciplinary in focus. The editors are open to a wide range of analytic approaches, including interpretive, ethnographic, historical, quantitative, and multi-method analyses, among others.
Center for Research on Diversity and Inclusion (CRDI)
The College of Liberal Arts Center for Research on Diversity and Inclusion (CRDI) will bring together faculty and students from Liberal Arts and across the university to capitalize on these already existing research interests and to encourage new research projects designed to explore fundamental questions about what diversity and inclusion mean, about the challenges of creating communities that are not simply diverse but that are actually inclusive, and about policies, practices, and laws that support or hinder efforts to create diverse and inclusive communities. The Center for Research on Diversity and Inclusion will promote research on a wide range of issues including but not limited to race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, nationality, age, religion and ability; and the social, political, and cultural support for and impediments to equal treatment and inclusion.
Politics, Race, Immigration, and Ethnicity Consortium
PRIEC, founded at the University of California-Riverside, is an ongoing series of meetings that brings together faculty and graduate students and showcases work-in-progress on racial/ethnic politics and the politics of immigration. The consortium’s main objectives are to provide a forum and a resource for graduate students seeking mentoring and advice, and for faculty to collaborate and receive feedback on ongoing projects.
Pi Sigma Alpha
The purpose of Pi Sigma Alpha is to stimulate productive scholarship and intelligent interest in the subject of government among students at institutions of higher learning in which chapters are maintained. Pi Sigma Alpha, the National Political Science Honor Society, is the only honor society for college and university students of government in the United States. At present, there are 621 Pi Sigma Alpha chapters on campuses across the country. The chapters are located in departments of political science in accredited four-year institutions throughout the country. Each chapter is guided by a faculty member serving as Chapter Advisor, and elected student chapter officers. The Purdue University Delta Omega chapter was established in 1967.

Political Science Department
The Purdue Political Science Department emphasizes an interdisciplinary outlook. Aside from its strengths in political institutions, the department also is especially noted for work in the areas of race, ethnicity, gender, and class, in environmental and climate change policies, and in civic norms and social ties relating to crisis situations. Our faculty currently has research and teaching interests in the fields of political behavior and institutions, public policy, international relations, comparative politics, political theory, and methods. However, we frequently emphasize intersections across fields and across disciplines. Many of our faculty have expertise and interests in more than one field.
College of Liberal Arts
The College of Liberal Arts sees as its mission educating every individual to live more knowledgably, responsibly, and humanely in a society in which simple solutions no longer answer complex problems. We respond to the demands of today's world by producing analytical thinkers and effective communicators who know how to gather information and assess it, and who can apply a perspective grounded in historical understanding to current issues. Across all disciplines, we apply the lessons of the past to the present and often seek appreciation for one culture from what can be known about another. We instill habits of inquiry and an excitement for acquiring an ever-broader range of knowledge that will prepare students for a lifetime of thoughtful decision making when faced with demanding choices and for an enjoyment of the riches that come through continued learning.
Office of the Provost
The goal of our office is to help provide the highest quality learning and research environments possible and to encourage engagement with various communities across the State of Indiana, throughout the country, and around the world.
