Brock students benefit from the commitment and expertise of faculty who give them an innovative and student-centred environment. Their influence engages students to think creatively and critically inside and outside the classroom.

Brock will honour two professors for their outstanding contributions to teaching and research at Fall Convocation on Saturday, Oct. 22.
