Presidential Search

Dear Members of the Brock University community:

On June 1, 2017, it was announced that the Brock Board of Trustees has confirmed Gervan Fearon to a five-year term as the University’s next President and Vice-Chancellor. He will commence his appointment on Aug. 1, 2017.

You can read the complete official announcement in The Brock News.

The appointment of Dr. Fearon concluded an intensive seven-month presidential search that was overseen by the Advisory Committee on the Presidency.

As Chair of that Committee, I would like to express my sincere appreciation to of my fellow committee members, and also to our search consultant Laverne Smith, whose guidance and insights were critical to the success of this important task.

We look forward in welcoming Dr. Fearon to Brock and are excited about the future for our University.


Gary Comerford
Chair, Advisory Committee on the Presidency
Vice-Chair of the Board, Brock University
