Brock University is one of Canada’s top post-secondary institutions. Located in historic Niagara region, Brock offers all the benefits of a young and modern university in a safe, community-minded city with beautiful natural surroundings. In the late 1950s, there was growing public discussion about how Niagara should have its own university. Its residents wanted young people to get a good education without having to leave the area. By fall 1962, the Brock Founders Committee was incorporated. It received approval to create a new university, and then developed an administrative and academic plan. Then it began raising money. After years of meetings and fundraising, Brock opened in September 1964. Brock serves its community as a cultural, academic and recreational centre, bringing excellent facilities to the people who created the University all those years ago. They are committed to building their community and to fostering an environment that serves their students and their neighbours.
