The Brock University Faculty Association has negotiated a new collective agreement that secures substantial new rights for Indigenous faculty members, increases consultation with Indigenous members of the university community when making Indigenous-focused appointments, and ensures that Indigenous knowledge and experience are recognized in hiring, promotion, and tenure decisions for both faculty and academic librarians.

The agreement also provides for greater scheduling flexibility, a guaranteed bank of course releases to compensate for extraordinary levels of research output and unscheduled teaching, and allows academic librarians to be recognized for research outside the field of library science. The memorandum of settlement also commits the university to preserving open search provisions for senior academic administrative positions that report to the president, a vice-president, or the university librarian.
