The announcement was made by Murray Knuttila, the University’s Provost and Vice-President Academic, who said, “The Advisory Committee was very enthusiastic in its recommendation, and I am pleased that Dean Dunk has agreed to another term.”
Dunk joined the University in July 2008 when he was appointed to his first term as Dean of Social Studies. Before coming to Brock, he was at Lakehead University, where he had been Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities and, earlier, Chair of the Department of Sociology.
He holds a BA (honours) from the University of Alberta and an MA and PhD in Anthropology from McGill University. Prior to Lakehead, he taught at Concordia University, McMaster University and the University of Toronto.
Dunk’s new term commences July 1, 2014. He will be taking administrative leave from July 1, 2013 to June 30, 2014, in order to continue his research and scholarly activities.
