We Welcome the World Reception March 2012


 

On Friday March 16, 2012, Brock International welcomed current Visiting International Professors, Scholars and University Mentorship participants from around the world at this term's We Welcome the World Reception. The event is organized each term to formally recognize new participants in the VIP, VIS, and UM programs at Brock. Scholars from prestigious universities in China, Korea, Austria, South Africa, Norway, Italy, Czech Republic, UK, Pakistan, Mexico, the USA and Iran, were treated to a warm reception at the event held in Sankey Chambers

The event was attended by senior University officials, Dr. Murray Knuttila, Provost and Vice-President Academic, and Dr. Gregory Finn, Vice Provost & Associate, Vice President Academic, who both gave welcome speeches to international scholars. Scholars and their Brock host faculty who were present at the reception were presented with awards to formally recognize their valued participation and contribution to Brock University by Dr. Murray Knuttila, Dr. Gregory Finn and Sheila Young, Director of Brock International.

The event was a good occasion for scholars to network with Brock faculty, staff, students, and fellow visiting international participants.
