A key component of APSA's mission is to support political science education and the professional development of its practitioners. Teaching is a vital component of our discipline. The Association seeks to generate a greater understanding of cutting-edge approaches, techniques, and methodologies that can be effectively applied in the political science classroom through programs like the APSA Teaching and Learning Conference, the APSA Distinguished Teaching Award, the APSA Spotlight on Undergraduate Research, and various panels on pedagogical topics at the annual meeting.

Propelling that mission, the SSSA brings together professional scholars, graduate students, and undergraduates from across the country and the world in the spirit of intellectual growth, collaboration, and collegiality.
