New Student Welcome

Welcome to Brock!  🎉  We’re happy to have you here — enjoy this short welcome video with our Vice-Provost and Dean, Associate Dean and FGS furbabies, Wren and Cooper.

In this video

Suzanne Curtin

Vice-Provost and Dean

Suzanne joined the Brock FGS family in July 2020 from the University of Calgary. She started her academic journey at McGill in Linguistics, after re-directing her path as a hairdresser, and completed her PhD in Psycholinguistics in Southern California. She enjoys travelling, VQA wines and catering to her little turkey, Cooper.


Suzanne’s sidekick

At five years old, Cooper is a small bundle of joy, loved by the FGS team. He loves watching birds, walking his humans and is an aspiring supermodel.

Brian Roy

Associate Dean

Brian joined FGS shortly after Suzanne in August 2020.  He began his career at Brock twenty years ago as an Assistant Professor in Kinesiology and has had a wide array of research, teaching and administrative positions.

Brian enjoys the outdoors, skiing and has even competed in the World Dragon Boat Championships!


Certified Therapy Dog 

You may not believe that sweet Wren is only two years old due to her outstanding obedience. She enjoys being an Instagram Influencer and sneaking bites of the FGS teams’ lunch (chicken is her fav!).
