Christine Brooks-Cappadocia has led the School’s Continuing Professional Education team since 2017. With the launch of several new programs which help recent graduates and mid-career professionals thrive in emerging fields, the School’s Continuing Professional Education division is considered among the most innovative in the country.

During her more than twenty-year career has focused on the marketing, fundraising, and communications of causes which benefit society. Before joining the School of Continuing Studies in 2014, Christine spent six years building and managing the marketing department of McMaster’s Centre for Continuing Education. During that period, the Centre experienced continuous double-digit year-over-year enrolment growth.

Her previous roles included marketing, fundraising, communications roles for arts companies ranging from national institutions such as the Canadian Opera Company to smaller community arts organizations before moving into leadership roles in social services and health sector charities. Her career highlights include the launch of a foundation to support at-risk youth, the development of the communications department for St. Joseph’s Healthcare Foundation Hamilton and the management of a high-profile event featuring former US President Bill Clinton and former Ontario Premier Bob Rae.

She has been privileged to serve in several governance roles in non-profit organizations including President and Founding Board Member of the International Association of Business Communicators’ (IABC) Golden Horseshoe chapter, Vice-President of Community Arts Ontario, and Founding Board Member of the Coalition of Ontario Voluntary Organizations.

Christine has earned several awards for marketing from the Association of Healthcare Philanthropists, the International Business Communicators and the Learning Resources Network (LERN). Christine holds a B.FA from York University.
