About the Munk School

The Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy at the University of Toronto is a leader in interdisciplinary research, teaching and global engagement. Established in 2010 through a landmark gift by Peter and Melanie Munk, the Munk School's mission is to be a leader in contributing innovative ideas that help to solve major issues facing the global community.

Rooted in the rigour of the University of Toronto, the School accomplishes this through:

  • Producing leading-edge research and thinking that has the potential to shape action in the world;
  • Educating students to have broad, multidisciplinary perspectives so that they will be leaders in addressing public issues in Canada, cross-nationally and globally;
  • Engaging broadly with other leading research institutions, with communities and decision-makers within the public, private and not-for-profit sectors in Canada and worldwide.
