Faculty Chair's Welcome

Welcome to the Public Affairs Residential College! We are a community of politically and socially engaged students, faculty, and staff who understand "public affairs" in the broadest sense. In addition to lunches, fireside chats, and activities in and around Chicago, we host political presentations and discussions, and in this election year we'll hold viewing parties for the presidential debates. We are always open to new ideas and activities from our residents, with the goal of building a better sense of community in our college, on campus, and even across the nation. Check out our website from the link above for a glimpse of what we’re about!
