Philanthropist Clayton Riddell, the founding supporter of the Clayton H. Riddell Graduate Program in Political Management, died September 16, 2018 at the age of 81. His generosity to Carleton University led to the creation of the political management program, which was intended to foster civil discourse in politics.

“We are saddened to learn of the loss of Clayton H. Riddell, whose generous support allowed Carleton University to create the first program in applied political skills and analysis in Canada,” said André Plourde, Dean of the Faculty of Public Affairs. “One of the guiding principles of this program is to get students from different partisan backgrounds to work together with a view of elevating political discourse and the practice of politics in Canada. We are proud of how the graduates of this program have gone on to influence Canadian political life.”
