Allison Vick is an Assistant Professor of Politics at Converse University. Allison’s main area of research and teaching interests center around American Political Institutions. Her dissertation research focused on potential individual-level factors that may influence different aspects of the legislative process. Specifically, her research has sought to address whether factors such as gender or faction identification impact how members of Congress approach amending. She plans to continue researching potential ways to better understand how hidden processes impact policymaking.

At Converse, Allison will be teaching American Government and the American Congress as well as other courses surrounding American political institutions and behavior. Dr. Vick has a passion for teaching the American Government survey course as an opportunity to cover a wide range of topics and help students find an area of politics that interests them.

Allison received her BA and MPA from Augusta University and her PhD from the University of Georgia. Outside of Converse, she enjoys spending time with family, traveling, and watching sports. She especially loves catching an Atlanta Braves or UGA game.
