TORONTO — Centennial College School of Hospitality, Tourism and Culinary Arts has named Suzanne Caskie as its new chair of Culinary Arts.
Caskie has been with the college for more than three years, most recently as manager of Recruitment, Retention and Academic Operations. In this role, she helped the school build a best-in-class student success environment.
Prior to joining Centennial College, Caskie held faculty and strategic-leadership positions at Durham College and George Brown College.
“Suzanne brings a wealth of expertise to this position, having worked in some of our competing institutions in a curriculum development, teaching and management capacity,” says Joe Baker, dean, Centennial College School of Hospitality, Tourism and Culinary Arts. “Her commitment to student success in the classroom has been a defining aspect of her career, which of course is hugely beneficial now as academic leader of our Culinary and Baking portfolio.”
Caskie has completed studies in Adult Education at Brock University, as well as a Professional Fromager certificate from George Brown College. She is currently studying for a master’s degree in Gastronomic Tourism and will soon be among a select few Canadian food educators with the qualification.
