Sejarah FISIP

A. Faculties of Social and Political Sciences
1. History
The Faculty of Social and Political Siences (Fakultas Ilmu Sosial dan Ilmu Politik-FISIP) was the first faculty established in the University of Riau. Its formation was based on the decree of Riau Foundation No. 2/KPTS/JUR/62 25 September 1962. This was later strenghtened by the decree of Minister of Higher Education and Sciences No. 123 in 20 September 1963 (effectively recognised in 1 October 1963).
FISIP has been through several name changings. When it was firstly formatted, this faculty was known as the Faculty of State and Business Administration where there were two departments operated; the Department of State Administration and Business Administration. Back then, the establishment of these departments was related to the need to fill for administrative employees within the government institutions as well as in private business in Riau province.
Over the years, this faculty has developed several new departments, such as Department of Law (based on the decree of University Senate on 2000) and Department of Communication (based on the decree of University Senate on 2000). The Department of Law was later disintegrated and became the Faculty of Law.
