Professor Andrew Price-Smith, David Packard Professor of International Relations and Director of the Global Health Initiative, passed away last week after a lengthy illness. He is survived by his wife, Janell Price-Smith, and their two children. Our thoughts and prayers are with Drew’s family, colleagues, and friends.
Professor Price-Smith joined the CC faculty in 2005 and served as chair of the political science department from 2013-2016 and as the founding director of our Global Health Initiative. Drew’s research focused on the effects of disease, environmental change, and energy scarcity on the security of nations and taught courses on the environment, health and security, and international relations.
Born in Toronto, Canada, Professor Price-Smith was a graduate of Queen’s University, before receiving his M.A. from the University of Western Ontario and his Ph.D. from the University of Toronto.
A memorial service is being planned for early September; more details will be provided soon.
