The many countries and cultures that make up Brock’s growing international community will be at the centre of a popular event taking place next month.
Brock International is looking for enthusiastic faculty, staff and students to participate in Celebration of Nations and represent their home country.
“It’s a great opportunity to showcase your heritage and highlight unique aspects of your culture to others,” said Sandra Gruosso, interim Associate Director of Brock International Services.
With more than 100 countries represented on campus, the annual event highlights Brock University’s multicultural diversity.
The celebration, held Thursday, Feb. 1 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., will see Market Hall transformed as members of Brock’s international community come together to share various foods, traditions and artifacts with faculty, staff and students interested in learning more about their cultural mosaic.
The event provides the Brock community with an opportunity to deepen its understanding of the world outside Canada, and provides a chance to learn more about cultural traditions and values without leaving campus.
Faculty, staff and students interested in sharing their global experience with the Brock community are invited to host their home nation and participate in the event by completing the sign-up form on the Brock International website by Friday, Jan. 26.
