 Prof. Edwards Discussions
in Politics Series


In honor of the memory of former MSU Political Science Professor (1923-1958) and member of the Board of Regents (1993), Atticus F. 'Prof' Edwards, the political science department has begun a series of roundtable discussions on politics. This series is intended to bring faculty and students together on campus to discuss a series of political issues in an informal setting.  Building on Prof Edwards desire to promote collegial discussions in politics, we hope this series sparks interest in the important issues facing our campus, city, state, country, and world today.
