What is the Brock Symposium on Excellence in Education?

Each spring, the Brock Laureate receives the prize at a public ceremony, the Brock Symposium on Excellence in Education, at which he or she delivers a keynote address.  The Brock Symposium seeks to shine a light on notable accomplishments in the field of education and then to use those accomplishments as a springboard for communicating educational excellence to practitioners, parents, researchers, administrators, and political leaders.  Held at one of the three partnering universities, the Symposium is a signature event to which teachers, principals, university faculty and administrators, education executives, students, and the general public are invited to attend.
