Faculty and Staff Campaign

At Brock University, we are fortunate to have a community of faculty and staff who care deeply about our students’ wellbeing and growth. Over the years, faculty and staff have come together to support a number of initiatives that directly impact the daily lives of our students.

How will you support student success this year?

Areas that need your support

Students face a wide variety of challenges during their time at University and some of these impact their mental health. Here at Brock we want to ensure the appropriate resources are available so that our students can manage and cope with their issues.

Currently, Brock University ranks first in mental health services as depicted by the Maclean’s University Rankings and your support will help to ensure that this can continue.

When you donate to the Student Wellness Fund you will be making a difference in the life of an overwhelmed student as they cope with stress, learn to study effectively and maintain a healthy life balance.

At Brock University, students are presented with opportunities to grow, learn and mature. They experience all of the joys that accompany success and will learn to manage the challenges that they will face in every-day life. However, there are some students on campus who will not be able to experience the valuable lessons that Brock has to offer without receiving financial support.

That is why, Brock has introduced the Student Emergency Fund. This funding assists student who may have their education derailed by a particularly challenging time.

Your donation to the fund will help to ensure that students can continue the Brock experience.

Faculty & Staff Appreciation Notes

Sometimes we get so caught up in our day-to-day work that we forget to pause and reflect. We want you to know you are appreciated!

“Alex Christie (Assistant Professor, Centre for Digital Humanities) and the guidance he has provided me within the multiple courses I have taken have been instrumental to my time here at Brock.

Within my final year at Brock, Alex is advising me with my capstone project. The success of this project will not be achievable without the words of wisdom and time he has put forward. In addition the support Alex is providing has encouraged me to look in both post-grad degrees and masters programs.”

– Anna Lang (5th year student)

Professor McNamara helped keep me intrigued during lectures and made my transition to university easier with his lecture style. He showed me what a good professor should be like and helped me realize that child and youth studies was what I truly want to do. - Jordan, Brock student

Dr. Hyatt impacted my life at Brock immensely as he was the first professor I had in university in which I would consider my favourite. He showed me the "ins and outs" of the professional sport industry and certainly helped kick start my passion in the industry. - Quinn, Brock student
