Alumni and Donors

Henry Marshall Tory, the founding President of the University of Alberta, believed:

"A University should be the most practical of all institutions. It should strive to find answers to the economic and social problems of common everyday people and then share its knowledge with them."

The Department of Political Science is committed to this founding vision. We seek to educate students and create cutting-edge research, inspired by the ideal of a vigorous citizenry engaged in the culture and politics of a civil society. We depend on alumni and donors who share this vision.
