Gervan Fearon, President and Vice-Chancellor of Brock University and Sean Kennedy, President of Niagara College joined the GNCC to examine the challenges the COVID-19 crisis has created for colleges and universities.
Since its construction in 1968, Brock University’s Schmon Tower has been a fixture on the Niagara landscape. With the help of a bright and efficient LED lighting system, the 13-storey landmark is as eye-catching at night as it is during the day. Members of the community can now request the tower be illuminated in a particular colour for holidays and non-commercial special events.
We acknowledge the land on which Brock University was built is the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabe peoples, many of whom continue to live and work here today. This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties and is within the land protected by the Dish with One Spoon Wampum agreement. Today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Metis, and Inuit peoples and acknowledging reminds us that our great standard of living is directly related to the resources and friendship of Indigenous people.
