We are aiming to make this one of the best times of your Brock experience and so we want to ensure everyone is treated with respect, dignity, and is safe at all times. We ask that throughout all orientation programming and beyond you adhere to the rights and responsibilities afforded under the Student Code of Conduct. For virtual experiences, please remember that conduct online during Brock events can lead to issues that will be addressed should they cause harm to others, the University, or the community at large.

Beyond the basic principles within the Code, Welcome Weeks provide fun events where people of different races, religions, cultures, belief systems, sexual orientations and walks of life come together as the Brock Community. With this said, we ask that you be mindful of certain sensitivities and appropriateness of what you wear and how you address others in the virtual environment and when meeting others in person.
