APSA Member Highlight: Camille Burge

"I initially joined APSA to see the job listings when I was on the market. I continue to stay involved because of the high value the organization provides in cutting edge research. I enjoy attending the annual meetings and reconnecting with friends from graduate school and other programs that I participated in over the last 8 years such as the Ralph Bunche Summer Institute, ICPSR, and the Summer Institute in Political Psychology at Stanford. APSA also provides a great platform for networking with scholars whose work you admire.” – Camille Burge, Villanova University
