International Educational Opportunities and Visitors to CIG from York University
One of the individuals whom I met in person at the Forum and with whom I had been in contact with previously was Mr. Wade Hall, the Assistant Vice-President, Development of the York University Foundation. He in turn introduced me to Dr. Martin Singer, Dean of the Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies at York University and to Dr. Marilyn Lambert-Drache, Associate Vice-President International also at York. Dr. Lambert-Drache’s office administers the undergraduate internship program that sends a student to CIG each spring/summer to serve as an intern. The next day we had breakfast together to discuss how York and the Institute could work more closely together to support the goals of each institution. We were joined by Mr. Steve Mirkopoulos from Toronto who is a member of the Board of Directors of the Hellenic Heritage Foundation in Canada.
Next week I will write about the lecture tour in Ontario and Quebec that I am presently doing. If it is Friday, it is Montreal!
