The deadline is near for Brock University students to complete the annual Maclean’s magazine student satisfaction survey.
The survey, which has already received a record response from Brock students, is used to help calculate the positioning of Canadian universities in the annual Maclean’s University Rankings issue. The results help universities identify their core competencies and areas in need of improvement.
Brock students who complete the survey by Monday, May 31 will be entered into a draw to win one of several prizes:
- one of 10 sets of Apple AirPods
- one of 10 $100 gift cards to the Brock Campus Store, which can be used online or in store
- the Grand Prize of Apple AirPods Pro and a $500 Campus Store gift card
Maclean’s is also offering participating students the opportunity to win a $500 VISA gift card.

“We at Brock University highly value the views and support of everyone in our community,” said Brock President Gervan Fearon. “I encourage all of our students to participate in this initiative and represent the essence and pride of our University.”
The student satisfaction survey is one aspect of the Maclean’s University Rankings, which examine several factors about every university in Canada. Universities are categorized into one of three areas: undergraduate, comprehensive or medical doctoral.
Brock University is in the comprehensive category and is ranked according to indicators such as student services; student scholarships and bursaries; institutional reputation; research productivity; faculty and student awards; and resourcing for the library.
Survey questions focus on the quality of the academic experience, such as quality of instruction, academic advising and experiential learning, as well as student support services, such as mental health and sexual violence prevention. The survey also asks students to comment on their level of co-curricular involvement and their knowledge of relevant and important topical issues, such as the level of support afforded to Indigenous awareness and human rights and equity.
Last year, for the third consecutive year, Brock University ranked first among all comprehensive universities in Canada for mental health supports for students. Brock also rose to second amongst comprehensive universities in Canada for overall student satisfaction, as well as academic advising.
