Community Engagement

Just as it is important to your University experience to get involved on-campus, it is also beneficial to be involved in the community. But what does it mean to get involved in the community?


Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, engage with the community and build your resume. Join us for days of service like Brock Cares, or on local and international Alternative Reading Weeks, as well as at several events and fundraisers that we host in partnership with great community organizations. Or visit Volunteer Fair or our ExperienceBU page to connect with community agencies looking for your help!  

Support local sports teams

Did you know that there are more than a dozen local sports teams in the Niagara Region?

In addition to cheering on your favourite Brock Badgers, check out the Niagara Ice Dogs or the River Lions at the Meridian Centre.

Community engagement events

Student Life coordinates more than 65 community events throughout the year in which students, staff, faculty and alumni can participate. Show your Brock spirit in a parade, be part of the Brock team at Relay for Life, or dress up on Halloween and collect food for Community Cares at Trick or Eat!
