On February 13, 2013, Brock International introduced to the Brock community 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. This term, Brock was pleased to welcome scholars from nine academic institutions across multiple continents. Scholars from prestigious universities in Austria, Brazil, China, Germany, Turkey, Mexico, the Netherlands, and the USA were treated to a reception in the Pond Inlet.
The event was attended by senior University administrators Dr. Greg Finn, Vice-Provost and Associate Vice-President, Academic, and Ms. Kim Meade, Vice-Procots and Associate Vice-President, Student Services. Dr. Greg Finn and Ms. Kim Meade gave encouraging addresses to the VIP, VIS, and UM participants. Scholars and their Brock host faculty who attended the reception were presented with awards to formally recognize their valued participation and contribution to Brock University by Dr. Greg Finn, Ms. Kim Meade, and Sheila Young, Director of Brock International.
The event was a good occasion for scholars to network and collaborate on ideas with Brock faculty, staff, students, and fellow international participants.
