The Sarah T. Hughes Field Politics Center sponsors conferences and speakers series to bring diverse political figures to the campus. Special programs of the center include:

Politician in Residence Program

For this annual program, the center invites a local, regional, or nationally recognized politician to spend a couple of days at Goucher College to talk to students in classes and give a campus lecture.

Hughes Center Coffee Club

The Hughes Center hosts a monthly coffee club for Political Science and International Relations majors, minors, and faculty. The coffee club serves as a way for students in the Political Science/International Relations department to connect with each other and their professors in an informal, community-oriented atmosphere.

Hughes Center Supper Club

In addition to our monthly coffee clubs, the Hughes Center also hosts a supper club for Political Science and International Relations majors, minors, and faculty once a semester. The supper club serves as another way for students in the Political Science/International Relations department to connect with each other and their professors in an informal environment. Additionally, each supper club honors a Goucher College alumnus for their commitment to public service in Maryland.
