Jarislowsky Democracy Chair
The Jarislowky Democracy Chair for the study and advancement of democracy was made possible by a generous donation from The Jarislowsky Foundation. The $2-million gift, matched by Ryerson University, endows the chair and positions Ryerson at the forefront of teaching, research and knowledge exchange on democracy. It also provides a public forum for discussion and debate about democracy at this critical moment in its evolution. Dr. Sanjay Ruparelia currently serves as Jarislowsky Democracy Chair.
