Illinois Rooms Third Floor
The UIC Department of Political Science, will host the annual National Student Issues Convention on our campus.  This is a morning of students learning and participating in hands-on democracy!  During the morning, students gather to talk about concerns that impact their demographic and develop a short list of the most popular issues to present to a panel of elected officials and those candidates who are running for office. THIS IS NOT AN OPPORTUNITY FOR A DEBATE BETWEEN CANDIDATES!!!

This year we are inviting all of the Illinois Gubernatorial and Chicago Mayoral candidates to come and hear from our students!
