The paperwork is completed and Peter Tiidus has signed off on his re-appointment to a second five-year term as Dean of Brock University’s Faculty of Applied Health Sciences (FAHS).
Tiidus was appointed Dean in 2015 when he came to Brock from Wilfrid Laurier University and focused on growing FAHS in terms of programming and its already-impressive research activity. The Faculty expanded its footprint by developing several new academic programs, including the Master of Applied Gerontology, as well as several others that are currently in various stages of development and approval.
He also placed an emphasis on experiential education and hands-on laboratory experiences for students; engaging alumni with students through departmental alumni days and the FAHS Alumni Insider magazine; and continuing to grow the Faculty’s popular undergraduate programs.
Before coming to Brock, Tiidus had been a professor, department chair and a muscle and exercise physiologist in Laurier’s Departments of Kinesiology and Health Sciences. He had also served as Interim Dean of the Faculty of Science.
His new term at Brock officially commences on July 1.
