Don Young joins MSM as its New President


Don Young Joins MSM as its New President  – Don Young, formerly at the helm of St. Lawrence College’s international education, brings more than 45 years of global experience to MSM as its newly appointed President.

Young brings more than 45 years of global experience to MSM. At St. Lawrence College (SLC) in Kingston, Ontario, he was a school Dean in engineering technology and trades for six years, and then served as faculty Dean with four schools and 3,000 students for eight years. This portfolio included academic programs ranging from apprenticeships and certificates to bachelor’s degrees.

At SLC, he was responsible for all international activities and was promoted to Vice President for international education in 2017, a position he held until his retirement in December 2019. To this day, he maintains significant focus on continuing to mentor and nurture other leaders, as well as accelerating organizations through strong leadership.

“I have worked with MSM for a number of years as one of their college partners, and its reputation has become highly valued reflecting not just the caliber of its leaders, but also the hard work and quality of each and every member of the organization,” said Young. “It is nothing short of exciting and challenging to join MSM as it grows rapidly and establishes its leadership in the international education space.”

Young has visited more than 40 countries, mostly for work, and spent a considerable amount of time in Germany, Norway, China, Ireland, the United States, Somalia, Haiti, and Eritrea. In his first career in the Royal Canadian Air Force, he was a helicopter pilot serving across Canada and overseas, as well as a commanding officer of a helicopter squadron in Edmonton and Haiti and the mission activation team in Eritrea.

“His wealth of experience has equipped Don with the global mindset and leadership that will fortify MSM’s international growth and expansion, and take us into the future with great confidence in better serving our partner institutions, affiliate agents, and students around the world,” said Sanjay Laul, CEO and Founder of MSM.

Young has a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering and a master’s degree in policy and management studies. He lives in Kingston with his wife, Shirley, and they have two married sons.
