PCCUA's Bagley selected section chair for APSA conference
Andrew Bagley, social science instructor at PCCUA, has been selected to serve as section chair for student research for the March 2013 conference of the Arkansas Political Science Association (APSA) at Ouachita Baptist University in Arkadelphia.
As section chair, his duties will include organizing research papers into panels, recruiting panel chairs, and serving as a panel chair. During the conference, a total of 16 graduate and undergraduate students will be presenting research spread over four panels.
Commenting on his selection, Bagley said, "I am honored to be asked by my colleagues in the Arkansas Political Science Association to chair an entire section of our annual conference program. It isn't often that community college instructors have this opportunity, and I look forward to fulfilling this obligation and reviewing the exciting research being done by political science students across our great state."
APSA program chair, Kevin Brennan, stated, "Andrew attended Ouachita during my first few years as a professor. He was very good at analyzing the content we studied in my courses. He also participated in our Model United Nations program as a student and performed very well. When I started working as the program chair for this year's annual meeting, I immediately knew I would like Andrew to serve as a section chair."
Bagley, who joined Phillips College in 2007, holds a B.A. degree from Ouachita Baptist University and an M.A. from Baylor University.
