Farnsworth Named President-Elect of Pi Sigma Alpha

Pi Sigma Alpha

Stephen Farnsworth, professor of political science and director of the university’s Center for Leadership and Media Studies, has been named President-Elect of Pi Sigma Alpha, the national political science honor society. Nine UMW students have won national writing awards from the 600-chapter honor society, more than any other university in the nation. More than half of those UMW students were recognized for papers written in Farnsworth’s Research and Writing class or for honors projects that he directed. Farnsworth has served for eight years as a member of the honor society’s national executive council.
