Brock University encourages a heart for community and a head for innovation. Our passion drives us to discover, disseminate, and apply new knowledge. Improving quality of life through leading-edge research is what we’re all about.

Our transdisciplinary approach to research sets us apart. Experts from completely different disciplines – a biologist and a social scientist, for example – work shoulder-to-shoulder in labs, offices and even the lunchroom combining their expertise to come up fresh, new approaches to common problems.

Our new research groups expand and disseminate expertise in biotechnology, health care, the environment, and social issues, forming mutually beneficial partnerships with community organizations in the process. We also bring innovations to market with our more than 160 active projects involving 60 of our professors and others.

Our rigorous undergraduate, graduate and doctoral programs include experiential learning opportunities and one of Canada’s largest co-op programs. But our unique philosophy takes students even further. Brock is a place where left-brain and right-brain thinking come together. Students develop rational/analytical thinking in concert with their emotional/creative sides. We view community involvement as crucial to developing intelligent, well-rounded members of society.
