Q&A with Anthony L. Pinder ’85
Executive Director, Andrew Young Center for International Affairs
Education: Bachelor’s degree in finance from Morehouse College; master’s degree in international economics and Latin American studies from The Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies
Before Morehouse: “Michael Lomax ‘68, then president of Dillard University and another Morehouse man, recruited me to develop an international profile for the school. As the associate dean of Global Studies and director of Dillard University’s International Center for Economic Freedom (DUICEF), I served as the principal fundraiser on a multi-million-dollar construction project, which contributed to the establishment of the physical site of the DUICEF Center, the first new building construction project at Dillard in more than 10 years.
“I am committed to doing the same caliber of work at Morehouse. As an alumnus this is a real opportunity for me to contribute to Morehouse and is consistent with what I was doing at Dillard.”
What’s Next?: “We are working to increase the number of students who take advantage of the study abroad opportunities. We’re also looking for opportunities for faculty to make presentations at international conferences. One of our major projects is the development of the Andrew Young International Center Fellowship Program, a series of educational and work-related experiences to prepare competent global leaders.
“If we are going to consider ourselves the best and meet Dr. Massey’s world house vision, we are going to have to do some strategic things and I want to be a part of it.”
