Prairie State Society

Prairie State Society (PSS) serves as Harris students' introduction to the State of Illinois, hosting speakers, faculty and panelists to discuss and debate the happenings in state-level government and beyond. PSS strives to educate Harris students and provoke critical thinking about state policies in conversation with state politics. As states and cities continue to play a larger role in the governance ecosystem, understanding the unique dynamics of governing within Illinois will be essential for recognizing national trends. PSS offers a forum both for newcomers as well as long-time Illinoisans to engage with the state beyond the limits of Hyde Park, and learn how cities, suburbs and counties together compose the Prairie State.
