Professor Christopher Sands elected a Senior Fellow of Massey College

Director of the Center for Canadian Studies Christopher Sands has been elected a Senior Fellow of Massey College at the University of Toronto.
Massey College is a graduate students’ residential community affiliated with, but independent from, the University of Toronto. Senior fellows are elected from prominent representatives of both academic and professional interests at the university who seek to enrich the Massey College community.
Sands’ nomination and election comes as a result of his knowledge, research, and experience with U.S.-Canada relations and connections to University of Toronto faculty, which include SAIS Europe alumna (B’79) and former Canadian Ambassador to Vietnam Deanna Horton.
Sands said he is humbled to be included among a group of some of Canada’s academic leaders and added that despite not being affiliated with the University of Toronto prior to his selection, he has been welcomed into a community that “includes some of the brightest minds, creative artists, and innovative thinkers in Canada.”
As a senior fellow, Sands is encouraged to collaborate with Junior Fellows of Massey College, who are students, during lectures, performances, monthly banquets, and informal dinners. Later this year following Canada’s federal elections, Sands hopes to present a lecture on what the results from the U.S.’s 2020 elections will mean for U.S.-Canada relations. His senior fellow term begins in September, with renewal possible in 2022. Sands remains in his role as Senior Research Professor and Director of the Center for Canadian Studies at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies
