Call for Nominations for Senior Fellows

Massey College is a graduate students’ residential community affiliated with, but independent from, the University of Toronto. It provides a unique, congenial and intellectual environment for graduate students of distinguished ability in all disciplines to share in a rich and stimulating community. Through the Senior Fellowship, Alumni Association, the Quadrangle Society, Journalism Fellows, and Visiting Scholars, eminent academics and members of the wider community come together to interact with Massey’s graduate students and to provide a mentoring and supportive atmosphere.

Senior Fellows are elected from prominent representatives of both academic and professional interests at the University of Toronto. Senior Fellows are welcome to participate in all College activities, including having lunch or dinner at the college, attending Junior Fellow lectures and other events in the college, and signing up for Senior Fellow Luncheons, Dine-In-Hall evenings, and an annual Senior Fellows Gala.

In accordance with a resolution passed at the May 9, 2018 meeting of the Governing Board, a new method for nominating and selecting Senior Fellows has come into effect.

• The new process can be seen in the associated Senior Fellow Nomination and Selection document.
• The role and activities of Senior Fellows can be seen in the associated Senior Fellow Roles and Activities Document
• Nominations must include a completed nomination form.

All members of the Massey Community (including Alumni, Junior Fellows, Senior Fellows, Quadranglers, Journalism Fellows, Visiting Scholars and Staff) are eligible to nominate new Senior Fellows for consideration. Each nominee must be supported by two members of the Community.

Massey College is strongly committed to diversity within its community including disciplinary diversity. The College especially welcomes nominations of racialized persons/persons of colour, women, Indigenous/Aboriginal People of North America, persons with disabilities, LGBTQ persons, and others who may contribute to the diversification of ideas.

Nominations must include the nomination form mentioned above, as well as the Candidate’s CV and a letter of nomination from each nominator (each with a 2-page maximum). Nominations should be e-mailed to the Chair of the Senior Fellow Nominating Sub-Committee at
