Dean's Message

Thank you for visiting our website, and welcome to the Faculty of Education at Brock University!
In June 2013, an important announcement about program delivery for Teacher Education was made jointly by the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Training, Colleges, and Universities. As a result, our Teacher Education programs have undergone revisions.  Please read more about Teacher Education as well as all our exciting programs in the Faculty of Education here.
As I write this on April 30, 2015, we anticipate exciting events that celebrate our academic year end. On Tuesday, June 9, 2015, at 4.30 p.m. an authentic birchbark Canoe donated to the Faculty of Education by Nishnawbe Aski Nation (NAN, our partners in the B.Ed in Aboriginal Education program at Sioux Lookout) will be welcomed officially and ceremoniously, and thereafter will be on permanent display in the Atrium of Welch Hall. Invited to the ceremony are NAN elders and partnership members of Aboriginal communities, members of the Faculty of Education, as well as senior administration at Brock.  
On Wednesday, June 10, 2015, the Faculty of Education will celebrate Convocation. Prior to that, at 8 a.m., the Faculty of Education will host our Alumni Awards breakfast in the Atrium of the Welch Hall. These awards are for Service, Teaching and Scholarship. 
Finally, as my term as Dean draws to an end, one of my current preoccupations is my work as a member of the Restructuring Scenarios Steering Committee, the smaller writing team, and of course with Faculty Board on re-visioning the Faculty of Education. This is exciting work, which takes the Faculty of Education forward via a phased action plan for implementation. I want to thank all Faculty of Education colleagues, but most importantly the dedicated members of the Restructuring Scenarios Steering Committee for engaging in such important and at times challenging work. After we create our vision and plans, on July 1st 2015 I will be handing over to incoming Interim Dean David Siegel. A warm welcome to Dr. Siegel from all of us in the Faculty of Education at Brock University!
