Center for the Study of Government and Politics

The Siena College Center for the Study of Government and Politics is a living laboratory of government and politics for engaging our students in civic literacy.

The focus of the Center for the Study of Government and Politics is citizen education, with a goal of encouraging greater student interest and participation in government and politics.

The Center is governed by a collaborative Board comprised of members of the Department of Political Science, the Political Science Society and the Siena Research Institute (SRI), our nationally recognized public opinion research center.

The Center serves as a resource of information, a facilitator for promoting ideas and examining government, a catalyst for student directed and generated research on government issues, and a disseminator of program outcomes through presentation of journal articles, news releases, interviews, seminars, conferences and workshops.
