About the Donor

As a passionate health care advocate, Dr. Carolyn Byrne joined our university as its founding dean in the Faculty of Health Sciences in 2002. During her tenure, she established undergraduate programs in Nursing, Medical Laboratory Sciences, Health Sciences and Kinesiology as well as a graduate program in Health Sciences.

To mark her retirement from Ontario Tech University, friends established The Carolyn Byrne Award. This endowed fund provides an annual bursary to an undergraduate student in the Faculty of Health. Dr. Byrne has continued to grow the endowment through her own contributions, thus increasing the impact for students in the Faculty of Health Sciences.
