Brock is building its reputation as a university known for a culture of research leadership.
To help, Gary Libben, Vice-President of Research, is co-ordinating the development of 2020 Vision: The Brock 2013 Research Plan. It’s the latest edition of the University’s research plan, a guide for advancing research at Brock until 2020 and measuring the milestones the institution reaches.
“Basically, our goal is to develop a document, about 20-plus pages, of something that specifies where we are, where we’re going, how to get there and how to know we’ve made progress,” Libben said.
Libben has spent the past few months at town halls and in meetings with administrators and researchers in different faculties to hear their visions for advancing the culture of research leadership, and how the University can effectively support and promote creativity, scholarship, discovery, and invention.
