WHAT: Members of the University of Massachusetts Amherst Pi Sigma Alpha political science honor society will moderate a forum of candidates for Amherst Town Council

Candidates for Town Council in Amherst will participate in a forum moderated by members of the UMass Amherst chapter of Pi Sigma Alpha, the honor society for political science majors, on Tuesday, Oct. 3 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in Bowker Auditorium in Stockbridge Hall. The event is free and open to the public. 

“As a political science honors organization, we believe that it’s important for students to learn about democracy up front — and to acquaint council members and potential councilors with the university community,” says Paul Musgrave, associate professor of political science.

The forum was organized with the help of the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences Dean’s Office and the Department of Political Science at UMass Amherst.
