Biographical history

Robert Johnston Drummond was born in Toronto, Ontario in 1945 and earned his BA at York University in 1968, followed by an MA and PhD at Northwestern University (Illinois) in 1968 and 1975 respectively. Starting in 1968 as a research assistant, Drummond has progressed up the academic ladder in his career at York to the rank of University Professor in 2009, as well as having served in a variety of administrative positions within his home faculty including Chair of the Department of Political Science (1986-88), Associate Dean of the Faculty of Arts (1988-93), Acting Dean of the Faculty of Arts (1993-94), Associate Director for the Centre for Research on Work and Society (1999-2001), and Dean of the Faculty of Arts (2001-2009). In addition, Drummond has served in various pan-university capacities including as Chair of Senate (2000-2001), and with the York University Faculty Association (YUFA) in various roles, in particular with committees concerned with pay equity, retirement and pension issues. Drummond's writing reflects his teaching interests in the Canadian government, Ontario politics, the politics of aging, public policy and research methods.
