Founded in January 2006, the Carleton Political Science Society (CPSS) has made its mission to provide a social environment for politically inclined students and faculty. Holding social events, debates, and panel discussions, CPSS aims to involve all political science students in the after hours academic life at Carleton University.

Our mandate is to arrange social and academic activities in order to instill a sense of belonging within the department and the larger university community. Members can benefit through numerous opportunities which will complement both academic and social life at Carleton University.
