Statement from John Suk, Chair, Brock University Board of Trustees

It is with great regret that I am announcing that Dr. Wendy Cukier and the Board of Trustees of Brock University have arrived at a mutual decision to not proceed with her appointment as President and Vice-Chancellor of Brock University.

Dr. Cukier is an outstanding alumnus and scholar, with a well-established record as a university leader. We greatly appreciate her contributions to the University since her appointment was announced last December. The long transition process gave both parties an opportunity to work together and many positive developments ensued. Dr. Cukier brought to the University new opportunities that will be part of her legacy. However, both parties have determined through this process that it was best not to proceed with her appointment.

Dr. Cukier will continue her work on innovation, on diversity and her active engagement with industry and community organizations. We wish her all success in her future endeavours.

Details regarding the formal search for Brock University’s President and Vice-Chancellor will be announced at a later date.

John Suk,

Chair, Brock University Board of Trustees
