The purpose of the Political Science Student Association (hence, PSSA) shall be to promote the general welfare of Political Science Students at UCSD. The PSSA will do this by providing a place where Political Science Students of all backgrounds and ideological views can discuss without fear of persecution not only academic subjects but also current events and any other topics that students wish to discuss. It is expected that all members of the PSSA be courteous to those who do not share their views. The PSSA also aims to provide a place where Political Science Students can meet other Political Science Students outside of a classroom setting and provide opportunities for Political Science Students to further both their academic and career goals. The organization aims to do this through hosting informational meetings, study sessions, guest speakers, and other Political Science related events that promote either Academic or Career growth.
