Political Science Graduate Organization (PSCGO)

The Political Science Graduate Organization (PSCGO) at the University of Nevada, Reno, is the graduate student arm of the Political Science Department. Established in the spring of 2010, PSCGO is one of more than 25 clubs and organizations officially recognized by the Graduate Student Association at UNR. Membership in PSCGO is open to all graduate students enrolled in the political science program at UNR.

In order to fulfill its mission of assisting in the professional and academic development of its members, PSCGO organizes regular Brown Bag Lunches that give graduate students and faculty the opportunity to present their current research. PSCGO organized its first expert lecture during spring semester 2011, inviting Dr. Ami Pedahzur from the University of Texas at Austin to present his lecture “The Israeli Secret Services and the Struggle Against Terrorism.” In addition to academic activities, PSCGO also organizes social events, including end-of-semester potlucks, to promote a strong and positive atmosphere within the department.
