It is the only university in Canada that is located in a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve,[3] located at the centre of Canada's Niagara Peninsula on the Niagara Escarpment. The university bears the name of Maj.-General Sir Isaac Brock, who was responsible for defending Upper Canada against the United States during the War of 1812.

Brock offers a wide range of programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels, including professional degrees. Brock was ranked 3rd among Canadian universities in the "undergraduate" category for research publication output and impact indicators in 2008.[4] Brock University is the only school in Canada and internationally to offer the MICA (Mathematics Integrated with Computing and Applications) program.

Brock has 12 Canada Research Chairs and 9 faculty members which have received the 3MTeaching Fellowship Award, the only national award that recognizes teaching excellence and educational leadership.[3]

History[edit]

In 1963 the Brock University Founders’ Committee, chaired by Arthur Schmon, offered Dr. James A. Gibson the invitation to become the founding president.[7]

Brock University was established by the Brock University Act in 1964.[8] When the University first opened in September 1964, classes were held at the St. Paul Street United Church in downtown St. Catharines for 13 weeks until the Glenridge Campus was completely renovated.[9]

Brock's Glenridge campus was officially opened on October 19, 1964 with Dr. James A. Gibson as the University's founding President. In 1996 Brock University honoured Gibson by naming the University Library in his honour.[7]

Richard L. Hearn was appointed the University's inaugural Chancellor in 1967.

Brock University is named after Major-General Sir Isaac Brock, who commanded the British and Canadian forces during the War of 1812. Although, the British and Canadian forces went on to win, Isaac Brock lost his life during the Battle of Queenston Heights in 1812, fought 20 km from the present-day site of the campus. His last words are said to have been Surgite! (Latin for "push on") — now used as the University's motto. For his contribution to Canada, Isaac Brock was voted the 28th Greatest Canadian in a 2004 poll, conducted by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.[10]

Jack N. Lightstone became the school's president on July 1, 2006. The University Chancellor is Ned Goodman, founder of Dundee Wealth Management.
