Celebrates 75 Years Young!
Not long after the end of the Second World War,
a group of university professors began to discuss creating a regional
political science association for the western United States. Those initial
discussions eventually led to the creation of the Western Political Science
Association at a meeting at the University of Utah in November 1947.
The WPSA will be celebrating its 75th anniversary
in 2022. As part of the celebration, we are planning a variety of special
events, receptions, panels, and presentations at our annual conference.
We especially encourage you to join us in 2022 in Portland so you can
participate in this celebration. Come, even if you are not presenting!
A good time will be had by all.
This website is devoted to the celebration. Follow
