PI SIGMA ALPHA chapter plans social justice discussions
The Xi Kappa Chapter of Pi Sigma Alpha, the national political-science honor society, won a $500 “Chapter Activity Grant” to sponsor events in the 2015-2016 academic year dedicated to promoting awareness of social-justice issues at UNG. The grant is especially noteworthy because back-to-back awards are seldom given. Xi Kappa won a $1500 grant from the national office the previous year, which it used to bring First Amendment expert Gene Policinski to campus for a series of events. Precise details of the chapter’s events are still developing, but will be publicized across campus. Dr. Beth Rauhaus and Dr. Sam Rohrer volunteered to coordinate the development and execution of the event. “I’m thrilled that Beth and Sam were kind enough and interested enough in social justice themes to run with this project,” said Dr. Charles “Trey” Wilson III, associate professor of political science and the faculty advisor of UNG’s Xi Kappa chapter.
