The Government Department is gearing up for Giving Day on Thursday, March 12 and we hope you'll join in the fun!
Your gifts to the Government Department help our faculty and students reach their full potential. Thanks to the generosity and support of our alumni, parents, and friends, your gifts increase student opportunities, create research and career experiences, and recruit and retain world-class faculty, who pursue frontline research while teaching and mentoring our undergraduates.
There is presently a tension in the United States between the competing claims of national identity, global responsibility for human rights, the imperatives of national security, and the realization of basic freedoms, not only for Americans but for humanity in general. Much of the research and teaching in the Department of Government addresses this tension.
