Brock president announces program review

July 1, 2013

Brock University president Jack Lightstone has created a Presidential Task Force to conduct a review of all administrative and academic programs, units and services at the university. Lightstone said “the exercise is intended to put Brock on the road to long-term sustainability by ensuring that its programs and services align with its stated mission and strategic priorities, while at the same time addressing Brock’s financial condition.” He also stated that because Brock’s projected operating budget for 2013-14 has a deficit of more than $7 million, there is a sense of urgency for the review. The taskforce, which is made up of administration and faculty, will later this year submit its findings to Lightstone and senior administration, who will present them to Brock’s senate and Board of Trustees in early 2014. Brock News
