PEP Logo

Our “PEP” logo includes 44 stars at the top to commemorate the renaming of the organization, which occurred in 2011 during the term of the 44th U.S. President.  The three stripes below signify (1) our strong dedication to American Presidency scholarship, (2) the progressive expansion of our section to include other areas of scholarly research related to executive politics, and (3) our vital commitment to teaching and mentorship.  Regarding the colors: red, white, and blue signify the origins of the organization (originally founded as the “Presidency Research Group” in 1979) as an American-based section of the American Political Science Association (APSA).
