Published on September 19 2012


Brock’s annual homecoming and community celebration kicks off this week. More than 500 participants are expected to visit campus and the region to take part in Brock Days and Alumni Weekend festivities.

As part of this weekend’s program, Brock alumnus and award-winning journalist Peter Goodspeed will return to his alma mater to deliver a keynote address on Saturday, Sept. 22 as part of the Back-to-Class series of workshops, seminars and tours.

Goodspeed has worked as a foreign correspondent, war reporter and editor throughout a 40-year career in journalism in which he reported from 63 countries and covered 22 conflicts.

During his presentation, he will talk about his days as a student and the role that Brock played in helping to launch his career. He will also speak to the changes he has seen in journalism over four decades and what is in store for the future of journalism and foreign news coverage.

His talk takes place from 12:45 to 2 p.m. in Academic South 204.

Now in its 12th year, Brock Days is a 10-day celebration that takes place over two weekends, from Friday, Sept. 21 to Sunday, Sept. 30.
