Tim Lynch removed from AVP Strategic Communications position

The associate vice president (AVP) for Strategic Communications, Tim Lynch, parted ways with Cal Poly Pomona as of October. 

Lynch has been with the university since April 2009. Although, there was a brief period between August 2014 and July 2016 when he moved to California State University Stanislaus to fill the role of associate vice president for communication and public affairs. 

The Strategic Communications and Marketing department watches over campus news networks like PolyCentric and is the news link between Cal Poly Pomona and outside communities. PolyCentric is the official news source for Cal Poly Pomona.

The department also manages the university’s official social media accounts. 

In his role as AVP, Lynch supervised the Department of Strategic Communications. Now, Lynch is moving forward with his career aspirations elsewhere.

“I am currently working on a contract basis at Claremont Graduate University’s Office of Advancement,” Lynch said about his current work.

According to Lynch, he was terminated from his role as the AVP and is unable to make a statement on the matter.

“At this point, on the advice of legal counsel, I cannot comment further,” Lynch said.

Before joining Strategic Communications, Lynch was a faculty advisor for The Poly Post.
