​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Political Science students elected the following students to be their representatives in departmental governance matters. ​


​​Suzan Arab

Hi! My name is Suzan Arab,​ and I'm from Hinsdale, IL. I'm a sophomore, and I was a Political Science Student Representative last year, where I acted in your best interest. I'm the VP of the Speech & Debate Team and the Secretary and Social Media Coordinator for the Pre-Law Society! As a leader on campus, I will ensure that I will remain a great student representative and will go to all lengths to make sure your voices are heard. 


Ben Dym

I am a senior here at DePaul and really enjoy immersing myself into the Political Science department and community. I wanted to serve as a student representative this year again because I had a great experience serving the department last year and feel that with my experience, I can even better serve the community for the 2023-2024 school year. I also hope that this will serve as a foundation for my future endeavors in the law as well as in future political endeavors.​


Nazo Islamaj

Hi, my name is Nazo Islamaj! I am a senior PSC major on the pre-law track. I am excited and humbled to be reelected for the third year as a PSC student representative and so appreciative of the support from my fellow students. As a rep, I aim to help foster the bridge between students and faculty. I hope to continue to place significance on PSC students' needs in the department and continue my work towards bettering their experiences as PSC majors. Please always feel free to reach out for any suggestions, concerns, questions, or just to say hello!

​​​Hey everyone! My name is John Kaiser, and I am a junior studying Political Science interested in American politics and elections. As a student representative I will act as a bridge between the department's student body and faculty. I will advocate for the interests of the student body and ask hard questions to ensure the best is being done for us students. I will also increase outreach efforts to hear from you, students, directly about the state of the department and overall university life!
