This conference will act as a first step towards rethinking the undergraduate political science curriculum as proposed by the Wahlke Report. To that end the conference invited papers and presentations that reconsider the recommendations of the Wahlke Report in different institutional settings. The organizers include representatives from Public Research Universities (where the major is growing the most), Regional Public Universities (which had been excluded from the original Wahlke task force), and Liberal Arts Colleges and Community Colleges (which had no representation on the original task force). The conference itself engaged scholars from a variety of institutions including majority or Predominately White Institutions (PWIs), Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs), Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs) and others.
PIs: John Ishiyama (University of North Texas), Marijke Breuning (University of North Texas), Terry Gilmour (Midland College), Fletcher McClellan (Elizabethtown College), Cameron Thies (Arizona State University), Renee Van Vechten (University of the Redlands), Sherri Wallace (University of Louisville)
