Student Representatives 2019-2020

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

Olivia Kennedy​

Olivia Kennedy
My name is Olivia Kennedy and I am a second-year student studying Political Science, Economics, and French. I am from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and was thrilled to move to Chicago and attend DePaul because of the endless internship and research opportunities, DePaul's unique location, and the strong academic and pre-professional programs in the city.  Growing up in Iowa gave me a ton of exposure to politics because of our first-in-the-nation caucus spot and I found that I really enjoyed this area of study through my time thus far at DePaul. As a student rep, I want to increase transparency and communication from the department to students and come up with some interesting events to increase student engagement with the department. 

Kacie Koenig

My name is Kacie Koenig and I am studying Political Science with a Law & Theory concentration. In addition to my major, I'm also double minoring in Spanish and Psychology. I'm an incoming junior, born and raised in Orange County, California. I came to DePaul to experience seasons, live in a city, and take advantage of all DePaul offers to get the best education. I can't wait to bring students' voices to the department faculty this year as a student rep!

Mairead De Witt


I am from Long Beach, California and came to DePaul to take advantage of the opportunities the school and the city have to offer. As a student representative, I am looking forward to voice and fulfill the needs of PSC majors, especially students of color, and encourage student-faculty interaction.
