A February 18, 2015 article in the Op-Talk section of the NY Times draws heavily on quotations from Prof. Julia Azari of the Political Science Department. The piece, on Governor Scott Walker's decision to fundraise through a 527 organization instead of the more traditional route of a political action committee, is available here.
It is with great sadness that the Department of Political Science announces that Professor Emeritus James M. Rhodes passed away on January 23rd after a courageous battle with cancer. A noted scholar of political philosophy, particularly for his work on Plato, Prof. Rhodes was also known as a challenging teacher with very high standards. He provided a wonderful example of putting students first and was an exemplar of the teacher-scholar approach that continues to serve as the model for faculty of the Department of Political Science. Just before his death, Prof. Rhodes completed work on a new book manuscript, which is scheduled to appear in print later this year.
To honor the memory of Prof. Rhodes, the Department of Political Science is naming our annual student-citizen award after him. The James M. Rhodes Political Science Student-Citizen Award will be presented annually to the Political Science undergraduate student whose performance at Marquette best demonstrates a commitment to both academic excellence and service to others.
Congratulations to our Political Science and International Affairs students that have been named to the Helen Way Klingler College of Arts and Sciences Dean's List for the Fall 2014 semester!
