The faculty of the UVM political science department are nationally and internationally recognized scholars in their fields. Not only do they regularly publish in academic outlets, but their expertise is also recognized more broadly, by the national and international media, by think tanks and research institutes and by the U.S. government. Among other accomplishments, UVM faculty members have been quoted in the New York Times, interviewed on NPR, appeared on the News Hour on PBS and testified before Congressional committees.
