On behalf of all of us in the Faculty of Education, I welcome you to our beautiful main campus. Originally a densely wooded area inhabited by Indigenous peoples, the land on which Brock is built is recognized by UNESCO as part of the Niagara Escarpment Biosphere Reserve. With a campus richly grounded in history and traditions, you are well situated to engage your mind, body and spirit during your July stay with us. Not only will you be able to delve into your studies, you will have the opportunity to explore the walking trails and potentially use them as a means to establish strong connections with faculty and peers, and to begin the transformation into the scholar you are meant to be.  I look forward to meeting each of you during your stay and participating in the scholarly events planned with you in mind.

Travel safe and see you soon.
