We invite you to join or renew your membership with the National Conference of Black Political Scientists.
Membership has its privileges and its responsibilities. NCOBPS embodies both notions.
Our members span the range of political science sub-fields – political theory, international relations, comparative politics, methods, public policy, and American politics. The professional pursuits of NCOBPS members are similarly varied, ranging from public policy analysis to international consultancies to elected office. Other NCOBPS members have held regional, national, and international leadership positions throughout the discipline.
We also strongly believe that our membership should be on the cutting edge of scholarship, teaching, mentorship, and community engagement. The benefits include:
Finally, we encourage all to remember why NCOBPS was founded. Our founding members understood that the depth of America's understanding about the problems of race turned on two things: (1.) the paradigms and practices evolving in the study of political science; and (2.) the exposure of the professoriate to new ideas and perspectives. The field of political science is only as strong as its professoriate is intellectually and racially/ethnically diverse.
