According to the American Political Science Association Website, the Louisiana Political Science Association was founded in 1972. The group holds an annual meeting which gives political scientists across the state the chance to present current research and affords graduate and undergraduate students an opportunity to sharpen their research and writing skills. The association is a contributing institution to the journal Politics and Policy. An LPSA member serves as an associate editor and other members serve on the editorial board.
