Pizza and Politics

Pizza & Politics at the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute
The place for politics on the SIU Carbondale campus.

Pizza & Politics events are open opportunities, primarily targeted for students, to engage in a free-flowing discussion led by an expert, professor, or political/media figure. Topics range and are focused on important policy issues, or careers in politics, public service, and advocacy.

Pizza is provided and the events are informal. We do ask that attendees register in advance. Dates and times vary, depending on the schedule of our guests.

If you are on our email distribution list, you’ll receive an invitation for each event. You are welcome to attend all of them or only a few. This isn’t a class. No homework. No grades. Just politics and some pizza.

To get on our email distribution list, please e-mail Cary Day at or call her at 618-453-4008. Also, be sure to connect with us on Facebook to learn about these and other Institute events.
