Carleton University’s Board of Governors has announced that Yaprak Baltacioğlu has been reappointed as Carleton’s Chancellor.

An alumna of Carleton’s School of Public Policy and Administration (SPPA), Baltacioğlu was appointed Carleton’s 12th Chancellor in 2018 after serving as Canada’s Secretary of the Treasury Board from 2012 to 2018, where she provided advice and recommendations to the Treasury Board committee of ministers on how the federal government spends money on programs and services, how it regulates and how it is managed.

“It is my great honour to be asked to serve another term as chancellor of Carleton University,” said Baltacioğlu.

“I am grateful to have the opportunity to serve my alma mater and to offer guidance and congratulations to our students as they transition into the next chapter of their lives.”

Carleton’s Chancellor presides over Convocation ceremonies, conferring degrees, diplomas and certificates on graduating students, and serves as an ambassador for the university. Baltacioğlu most recently addressed graduates during a virtual Graduation Ceremony for the November 2020 graduating class.

“We are so fortunate to have a leader and mentor as distinguished as Yaprak Baltacioğlu to serve as our Chancellor,” said Carleton President Benoit-Antoine Bacon. “She truly embodies the aspirations of our students and is a wonderful ambassador for Carleton in the broader community.”
