A brief description of the institution’s main campus and other aspects of the institutional boundary used to complete this report:

Brock University is located in St. Catharines, Ontario with its main campus in a United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Biosphere Reserve. Brock University pursues a global reach through its leadership in experiential education and work-integrated learning; research, scholarly and creative activities; and support for the vibrancy of communities.

Since it opened in 1964, Brock University has become a vibrant institution of more than 19,000 students, with rich academic programs and world-class research. As it was half a century ago, Brock remains a proud partner committed to improving the vitality of neighbouring communities across Niagara even as it extends its global reach. Today, Brock offers 150 undergraduate and graduate degrees through six academic Faculties, is home to 13 Canada Research Chairs and among Ontario’s top 5 universities for 3M Awards for Teaching Excellence. Brock University is also ranked as one of the best universities in Canada for student satisfaction, and is a leader in career success and experiential learning. Two years after graduation, the employment rate for Brock grads is higher than the average for Ontario universities.
