  • From the Dean’s Desk: Hamilton Campus update

    As you are aware, the Board of Trustees has decided to sell the current Hamilton Campus. There are many reasons for this decision, including the desire to expand our undergraduate and graduate programming in the Hamilton-Burlington-Oakville (HBO) corridor.

    The University is exploring a variety of options for our continued presence in the HBO corridor.

    The senior administration has committed to remain at the current Hamilton Campus until the spring of 2021. The Faculty of Education (FOE) will continue to offer its professional Teacher Education programs at the current Hamilton Campus in the 2020-21 academic year and in the HBO corridor for many years to come.

    As part of our commitment to engaging students, faculty and staff in the process, I invite you to share any questions or concerns with us through the contact form available on the Hamilton Campus page of the FOE website.

    As I receive information about the next steps in the planning process, I will post this information on the FOE website and social media accounts. Updates will also be sent to your Brock email address.

    We remain committed to providing you Ontario’s very best professional education and preparation to be a successful teacher in Ontario and contribute to Ontario’s exceptional school-based learning environments.

  • Hamilton teacher candidates help to feed local kids

    All year, the Hamilton Teacher Candidates Council (HTCC) have been working towards a goal. Helping to feed hungry kids in their community by supporting Food4Kids Hamilton. The HTCC raised $3,000 for organization from fundraising events and council funding.

    Food4Kids volunteers package and deliver more than 1,000 healthy food packages every Friday to more than 40 Hamilton schools. These healthy food packages are distributed to kids ages 4 to 14 who have limited or no access to food over the weekend.

    “As teachers we want nothing but success for our students, but when there are personal or financial struggles coming from home this can definitely hinder their success in the classroom,” says Stefanie DiSimoni, a second-year Consecutive Teacher Education student and co-chair of HTCC.

    With the goal of giving back to the community, the HTCC reached out to Food4Kids because of its connection to local schools. Many members of the HTCC had already encountered Food4Kids through placements in schools as part of Brock’s teacher education programs.

    “They were really impressed with our ability to reach out to children at risk and children in need with a program that’s healthy and direct and truly impactful and provided funds in order to support the children we serve,” says Lena Bassford, Executive Director at Food4Kids Hamilton.
