Schedule of Important Dates (Faculty and Staff use)
All graduate students must read and familiarize themselves with the intellectual property policies and guidelines of the University. In addition, the Policy on Integrity in Research and Scholarship requires graduate students and their graduate supervisors to sign an Intellectual Property Form indicating their agreement with the University policies and guidelines or indicating any specific arrangements that have been that differ from these policies and guidelines.
Further, Graduate Studies encourages all graduate students to have a conversation with their graduate supervisor about intellectual property in an attempt to navigate any potential intellectual property issues in advance. Graduate Studies has created an IP Checklist to help students begin a conversation with their graduate supervisors about intellectual property matters.

Spirit of Brock Medal
Applications are now being accepted for the Graduate Student Spirit of Brock medal to be awarded at Brock's Fall Convocation ceremony on October 16. The medal, presented by Brock's Board of Trustees, recognizes the academic excellence, leadership and community service of a graduating student from a master's or doctoral program. We invite faculty members to encourage students, who they feel best exemplify these qualities, to apply for the award through the Office of Student Awards and Financial Aid. Applications close on September 3.
