|Graduate Students' Association
|MacKenzie Chown D Block, 3rd Floor
All registered graduate students are members of the Graduate Student's Association. The Graduate Students' Association (GSA) represents the interest of all graduate students. The purpose of the association is to promote the interests of graduate students in academic and social matters, to facilitate interaction among graduate students from the participating graduate programs and to enhance the profile of graduate students internal and external to the University community. All graduate students are automatically members of the GSA and are charged a membership fee at registration. The GSA welcomes the interest and participation of all graduate students.
In addition to sponsoring various activities, the association provides funds for the Ralph Morris Graduate Student Award and to graduate students for conference travel expenses.
The GSA administers the graduate student's Comprehensive Health & Drug Plan, the Universal Bus Pass, the GSA membership fees and the Canadian Federation of Students Membership.
|Office of the Ombudsman for Students
|There may be occasions which cause students to feel that they are victims of unfair treatment. For guidance in both academic and personal matters, students can contact the Ombudsman. For assistance in getting through red tape, injustice, conflict and harassment, although not lawyers, the office of the Ombudsman for Students has access to expert legal advice, if necessary. It is important that all students become familiar with their academic rights and responsibilities. Read the regulations found later in this calendar. The Office of the Ombudsman is located in the Alumni Students' Centre.
|The Alumni Students' Centre
|This is the sixteenth year of operation for the Alumni Students' Centre. This building is a milestone on Brock's history as it is funded and operated solely by students. Some of the services found in the Students' Centre are: the BUSU offices, Isaac's Bar and Grill, the Advertising and Design Services, the Brock Press, the Student Lounge, the Health Plan Office, Pick up/Drop off Pharmacy Service, OPIRG Brock, Brock Foot Patrol, Brock Aid First Aid Responders, Office of the Ombudsman for Students and a photocopy service.
|Ontario Public Interest Research Group (OPIRG Brock)
|OPIRG is a student-directed and funded organization that provides an outlet for Brock students to actively work on a variety of environmental, social injustice and health issues. Through research, education and action, students will gain insight into the interrelationships between different social issues, while improving their skills and providing valuable information in the community.
All students are invited to participate in the activities of OPIRG. Students who do not wish to support the work of OPIRG are encouraged to get a refund of their student fees from the OPIRG office, located in Room 306 of the Students' Centre.
