Founded in 2000 as the Munk Centre for International Studies, it was named after Canadian businessman and philanthropist Peter Munk, who made a $6.4 million donation to finance the construction.[2] It occupies the historic Devonshire House, a former residential hall of the university’s Trinity College, and in 2012 opened a second location at 315 Bloor Street West after an $80 million collective contribution from the Peter and Melanie Munk Foundation, the Government of Canada, and the Government of Ontario.[3]

The School is located in the north and south wings of the Devonshire House building on Devonshire Place, which is shared with Trinity College’s John W. Graham Library. In 2012, the School opened a second location in the Observatory building at 315 Bloor Street West (formerly Admissions and Awards), which houses the offices of the Citizen Lab and the Master of Global Affairs program.

The founding director was Janice Stein, who held the position until 2014. The school was then headed by Stephen Toope until he became the 346th Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cambridge in 2017. After Toope’s departure, the interim director was Randall Hansen, who served as head of the School’s Centre for European, Russian and Eurasian Studies.

On April 6, 2018, the University of Toronto announced that the Munk School of Global Affairs would merge with the university’s School of Public Policy and Governance to become the Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy.[4] The merger took effect on July 1, 2018.[5][6]

On November 12, 2019, Michael Sabia was named as the Munk School’s director, starting in February 2020.[7] He served in that role until December 2020, when he was appointed by the Government of Canada as Deputy Minister of Finance.[8][9] Professor Cheryl Misak was announced as the interim director of the Munk School, effective December 15, 2020.[1]
