Kevan M. Yenerall, professor of political science, addressed the 2012 presidential election and student civic engagement at two recent conferences, Northeastern Political Science Association and National Collegiate Honors Council.
At the NPSA, Yenerall analyzed electoral dynamics and results in Pennsylvania on the panel “Battleground 2012: Essential States, Key Races and Electoral Dynamics.” Also on the panel were political scientists Scott McLean of Quinnipiac University and Brian Conley of Suffolk University. Yenerall presented on an additional 2012 election panel with political scientists Kimberly Adams of East Stroudsburg University, Jeffrey Kraus of Wagner College, as well as McLean and Conley.
At the National Collegiate Honors Council Conference in Boston, Yenerall presented alongside Clarion University honors students John Owens and Samuel Curtis, both of whom attended an academic seminar at the Republican National Convention this summer and were part of his political science class, “The National Political Convention Experience.”
Owens, Curtis and Yenerall served on the roundtable, “The 2012 Presidential Campaign:
A Faculty and Student Perspective on Civic Engagement,” providing a faculty and student perspective on how honors students benefited from first-hand participation in various aspects of the 2012 presidential election campaign, including involvement in the Democratic and Republican national conventions.
