 About Our Director


About Our Director:

Dr. Brendan Browne is a transformative organizational change leader, who brings a wealth of educational leadership in areas related to literacy and numeracy, special education, classroom management, educational technology, and program evaluation. He joins us from the Toronto District School Board (TDSB), where he most recently served as an Executive Superintendent, overseeing 283 elementary and secondary schools, adult learning and alternative education sites. At the TDSB, Dr. Browne executed meaningful systemic change focused on inclusion and equity in areas of human resources, financial stewardship, and organizational structures and responses. 
Prior to this, Dr. Browne devoted over 20 years of service to the Halton Catholic District School Board where he held a number of senior leadership portfolios. As a Superintendent of Education for over 5 years, he provided leadership to academic and clinical staff in support of student success, special education, mental health and well-being. In his capacity as a Principal and Vice-Principal for 8 years, he led culturally and economically diverse school communities where he put into action more diverse and inclusive practices for teaching and learning, fostered a commitment to faith formation, and nurtured a positive school climate and positive relationships with the surrounding school community. 
In collaboration with the Institute for Catholic Education and the Catholic Principals Council of Ontario, Dr. Browne developed four module courses to support ongoing leadership and faith development for Principals as part of a Catholic Leadership Course, and published a book entitled, “Leading for Educational Lives: Inviting and Sustaining Imaginative Acts of Hope in a Connected World”. As a graduate of the Catholic school system, Dr. Browne understands the importance of applying Catholic values in all that we do.
