Yaprak Baltacioğlu, who served as Canada’s Secretary of the Treasury Board from 2012-2018, has been named Carleton University’s 12th chancellor.
“Personal integrity is of utmost importance in this role,” Nik Nanos, chair of Carleton’s Board of Governors, said of Baltacioğlu’s appointment. “The chancellor is a champion of the university’s values, and in ceremonies and other public settings, she will inspire our students and foster Carleton pride.”
Born in Turkey, Baltacioğlu came to Canada at the age of 21 and pursued a Master of Public Policy and Administration in the School of Public Policy and Administration (SPPA). She went on to work in six federal government departments over the course of her career.
She was also chosen as one of the Faculty of Public Affairs’ 75 for the 75th in 2017, in honour of Carleton’s 75th birthday.
