Information session about a short-term study abroad program for multicultural counseling in Guatemala during the summer of 2014.
Chris Larimer, department of political science, will present "A Stranglehold on Power: Explaining gubernatorial stability in Iowa." Since 1962, only two incumbent governors in Iowa have lost their reelection bids. Despite their long tenures, Governors Robert Ray, Terry Branstad and Tom Vilsack, all faced formidable challengers along the way, and all three retained office while dealing with serious declines in the state’s economy. This research seeks to gain a better understanding of gubernatorial stability in Iowa; in short, why modern Iowa governors are continually reelected despite what political science models say should happen.
