Appointment of Professor Robyn Bourgeois as Acting Vice-Provost, Indigenous Engagement

Following the departure of Amos Key Jr. in September, the President and the Provost consulted with Indigenous leaders both inside the University and in the broader community to determine the path forward that would best allow the University to attain its strategic objectives. Dr. Robyn Bourgeois, an Associate Professor from the Faculty of Social Sciences, has accepted the role of Acting Vice-Provost, Indigenous Engagement until August 2022.

Professor Bourgeois is an accomplished academic with a track record of community engagement and commitment to the work of reconciliation and decolonization. The Provost and the Brock community look forward to working closely with Professor Bourgeois as she provides interim leadership for Indigenous initiatives at Brock, including the development of new programs and the recruitment of Indigenous faculty and staff colleagues.
