The Agenda Committee of Academic Board has approved the reappointment of Professor Carol Chin as Principal of Woodsworth College, effective July 1, 2024, until June 30, 2030.

Professor Chin joined the University of Toronto in 2003 as an Assistant Professor in the Department of History and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2008. She earned her A.B. summa cum laude in East Asian Languages and Civilizations from Harvard and her M.A. and Ph.D. in History from The Ohio State University. Her research and teaching interests are in late nineteenth- through twentieth-century American foreign relations, specializing in U.S.-East Asian relations. Her particular interest is in the intersection of national identity with concepts of empire, culture, and gender and the ways in which these themes can enhance the study of international relations.

Professor Chin served as Acting Principal of Woodsworth College in 2015–2016 and Acting Chair in the Department of History from July to December 2018. She was appointed Principal of Woodsworth College in July 2019.
