On June 16, 2011, Brock International welcomed current Visiting International Professors, Scholars and University Mentorship participants from around the world at the We Welcome the World Summer 2011 Reception. The event was organized to formally recognize new participants in the VIP, VIS, and UM programs at Brock. Scholars from prestigious universities in China, South Africa, Germany and France were treated to a warm reception at the event held in the Pond Inlet.
The event was attended by senior University officials, Dr. Ian Brindle, Vice-President Research Services and Kim Meade, Vice-Provost and Associate Vice-President (Student Services) who both gave welcome speeches to international scholars. Scholars and their Brock host faculty who were present at the reception were presented with awards to formally recognize their valued participation and contribution to Brock University.
The event was a good occasion for scholars to establish contacts with Brock faculty and fellow international scholars.
