Daniel Woolf is a fan of music (especially jazz), a husband, a father of three, and an avid "Tweeter. He also graduated from Queen's in 1980 with a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) degree, making him one of the university's many proud alumni.
When he learned he would become the 20th principal of his alma mater, he felt a mixture of "shock, elation and a little bit of fear. It was an honour and a challenge he looked forward to when he began his five-year term in September 2009, and one he thoroughly enjoys.
A historian by trade, Dr. Woolf continues to teach at Queen's on a part-time basis, which gives him the opportunity to interact with students. He has also continued with his research and writing activities. His love of academia runs in the family; his mother taught English at university, his physician father was a member of a medical school faculty, and his uncle is a historian of modern Europe.
Dr. Woolf transitioned to more administrative roles because of his desire to have an impact on a bigger scale. After teaching for several years, he became associate dean and then acting dean of Graduate Studies at Dalhousie University, and later a dean at both McMaster University and the University of Alberta.
...
Queen's is bigger now than it was when Dr. Woolf was a student. It's also more research-intensive and has a more diverse student body. In the future, he sees the university as a place known for innovation, a place with expanded capacity for research and graduate studies, a place that maintains high-quality undergraduate education, and a destination of choice for an increased number of international students.

Dr. Woolf is motivated by the students at Queen's - their energetic spirit, bright minds and dedication to making a difference in the world. He occasionally has the opportunity to shadow a student for a day - to attend classes and chat over a meal. The experience allows him to connect and glean insight into what students are thinking and feeling. He also engages regularly through Twitter and his blog.
What he loves most about Queen's are the people - students, faculty and staff - who make it tick, who transform the beautiful residential campus environment into a living, thriving learning environment where people are inspired to do great things.
Principal Woolf was reappointed for a second term on March 18, 2013.
