North Hall Society

The North Hall Society recognizes leadership donors who make an annual gift of $500 (or, for recent alums, $250) or more to the Political Science Department.

Upon becoming members, NHS donors receive a special gift recognizing their generosity and special updates from the department chair about the state of the department and the impact of their gift. NHS members also help shape the content of this page by submitting questions for our faculty and by suggesting candidates for our regularly updated “featured faculty.”
