North Central College in the News

North Central College political scientists highlighted in various Chicago media

Stephen Maynard Caliendo, William Muck and Suzanne Chod shed light on latest Jan. 6 Insurrection Hearing

The House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol held its ninth public hearing, the final one ahead of the midterm elections slated for Nov. 8. The blockbuster Jan. 6 hearings from this past summer each focused on a particular topic as part of the overall effort to overturn the 2020 election results. The ninth hearing, instead, took a “step back" and look at the push to undo President Biden's win from a broader context. However, the biggest surprise was the panel’s unanimous vote to subpoena former President Donald J. Trump for testimony.

As with most of the “news of the day” stories, North Central College’s political scientists were at ready when the media was in search of sources to discuss the developments—pre- and post-hearing. Stephen Maynard Caliendo, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at North Central College; William Muck, professor and chair of the political science department at North Central College; and Suzanne Chod, professor of political science at North Central College, all answered the call for commentary and were featured in news outlets across Chicagoland.
