Introducing the new Director of Carleton International

Carleton University Vice-President (Research and International), Feridun Hamdullahpur is pleased to announce the appointment of Mary Jo Lynch as the Director of Carleton International effective February 16, 2004.

“We are delighted to welcome Mary Jo Lynch to Carleton University to lead our international academic and research activities,” says Hamdullahpur. “Lynch brings a wealth of experience and expertise from her previous work.”

In her new role, Lynch will promote Carleton’s objectives in international research, education, entrepreneurship, ambassadorship, and networking.

As for on-campus networking, Lynch already has well-secured roots, as her two sons are currently pursuing studies at Carleton.

“I’m delighted to be here at Carleton,” says Lynch. “The University is engaged in an impressive range of international activity and I look forward to working with faculty, staff, and students to help Carleton develop new business and academic partnership opportunities throughout the world.”

For the past 13 years, Lynch was employed by Industry Canada, where she worked with suppliers of education and training services to assist them in becoming more competitive in both domestic and international markets.

She has also worked with the Academic Relations Division of the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade where she was responsible for the promotion of Canadian higher education interests within multilateral organizations such as UNESCO, and the Commonwealth.

Having spent four years at the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council in the administration of grant applications, Lynch is also familiar with many of the challenges facing the academic research community.

A native of Nova Scotia, Lynch studied French Literature at three Canadian universities, and holds a Ph.D. from the University of Western Ontario, an M.A. from Dalhousie, and a B.A. (Hons.) from Mount Allison.
