Lindsay is responsible for planning and executing internal and external communications strategies for the UBC School of Public Policy and Global Affairs and the Liu Institute for Global Issues. She oversees the coordination of new and existing academic and community engagement program initiatives at the Liu Institute: faculty and student exchanges, speaker series such as the Lind Initiative in U.S. Studies, workshops, meetings and conferences. She also manages the communications and marketing for the Master of Public Policy and Global Affairs program. She manages websites, e-newsletters, reports, social media accounts, and acts as a department liaison.
Her interests in global issues began while volunteering on the Thai/Burmese border with a grassroots community development project and has since grown to involve human security, poverty, sustainable development, refugee resettlement, social justice, and inclusion in parts of Asia as well as at home in Vancouver, B.C.
Lindsay joined the Liu Institute in 2014 from AMSSA, a non-profit association of multicultural and immigrant settlement service providers, where she developed and implemented a national diversity program. Lindsay has a MA in Intercultural and International Communications from Royal Roads University, a post-BA diploma in Sustainable Community Development from SFU, and a BA in English Literature and Sociology from UBC.
