We are honoured to announce that Susan Pond, Director of the Glendon School of Public & International Affairs, has been awarded as Senior Fellow by NATO SFA COE in recognition of the special relationship developed with the Centre in supporting its strategy and related products for the NATO Alliance and Partners.
Senior fellow is an honorary title awarded to highly distinguished senior experts, who have developed a special relationship with the NATO SFA COE and are committed to supporting its activities and projects on a continuing basis.
The award was presented by Col. Matteo Luciani, Director, and Maj. Ludovica Glorioso, Legal Advisor from NATO SFA, while on a visit to Glendon College yesterday, where they also met with Principal Marco Fiola and Professor Francis Garon, as well as students from Glendon’s Master in Public and International Affairs (MAPI).
The presence of Col. Luciani and Maj. Glorioso at the Glendon Campus was a follow up to the signature earlier this year of a Letter of Cooperation (LOC) between NATO SFA and Glendon.
Director Pond added, "These meetings with NATO SFA COE representatives allowed us to further discuss the role of Glendon’s School of Public and International Affairs, in support of the development of an education hub, as well as a unique summer internship opportunities for MAPI students at the SFA Centre of Excellence in Rome."
Susan Pond was recently at the offices of the Italian delegation to UN on October 31, where she was given the opportunity to speak about York University and Glendon College, as well as its role in support of ongoing research.
The Glendon School of Public & International Affairs is preparing for an exciting year of programming, starting with the Glendon Global Debate event: ‘Arctic security, are we ready for the future?’ on November 29, 2023. Among its distinguished guests, Aleqa Hammond, former Prime Minister of Greenland.
