New space to support business students’ development

Construction on an innovative space designed to offer supports for Brock’s business students and encourage collaboration will get underway this fall.

The new Goodman Gateway Student Support Centre, located in the 200 level of Mackenzie Chown Complex A Block, will allow the Goodman School of Business to concentrate its student support services in one location and provide an innovative multipurpose space where students can connect and collaborate, said Dean Andrew Gaudes.

“The Gateway will not only bridge the new space in A Block with our existing building and also Jubilee Court, but it will also act as a natural outlet for students to engage with both the Goodman School and each other outside of the classroom,” he said.

Goodman’s student programming staff, academic advisors, the Goodman International team and Goodman Career staff will all be located there to provide a critical mass of support for business students.

The multipurpose section will act as a student programming space that will facilitate everything from training, information sessions and group collaboration, said Susan LeBlanc, Goodman’s Director of Communications and Engagement.

“Creating exceptional student experiences is at the heart of everything we do,” she said. “The Goodman Gateway Student Support Centre will offer exciting opportunities for students to develop their professional competencies in a state-of-the-art facility.”

Renderings of the space were on display during Goodman’s Convocation celebrations Thursday, June 16.
