A Message from Brock University in St. Catharines, Niagara

Posted April 15th, 2020 on Niagara At Large

Niagara, Ontario – We hope you are keeping well during these difficult days.

While many of us may feel uncertainty at this time, we also find comfort in one unaltered truth: Our alumni community is strong. We encourage you to (virtually) lean on one another for support and friendship.

We have heard many stories about alumni making differences in their communities, and for every story that we hear we know there are countless others that go untold.

Today, our President, Gervan Fearon, has a message to share. Click on the screen below to listen to it here –

 

To all of our alumni serving in the health care system, working as first responders and those keeping our essential services running, we thank you. Thank you for your dedication, your empathy, your commitment and the sacrifices you make each day.

We are incredibly proud of you, Badgers.

In recognition of the significant impact the current situation may have on students’ financial situation, the University has created the COVID-19 Undergraduate Student Emergency Bursary and the COVID-19 Graduate Student Emergency Bursary.

These bursaries will be used to provide short-term emergency financial aid for both graduate and undergraduate students who have experienced a demonstrated financial loss due to the pandemic.

If you are in a position to do so, please consider supporting this fund.
