From the President's Desk


Welcome to a new year and, soon, a new academic term. Thank you for being an important member of the Acadia University community and joining us in 2021. Together, we made history in 2020 by offering in-person, remote, and hybrid learning opportunities for our students amid a global pandemic.

Town of Wolfville Mayor Wendy Donovan speaks in a room decorated for the holidays

Enjoy greetings from the Town of Wolfville Mayor Wendy Donovan and Acadia University President Peter Ricketts in place of the town's traditional New Year's Levee.

President Peter Ricketts wishes the campus community a peaceful and restorative holiday.

In 1989, 14 women were targeted and killed because of their gender in a mass shooting at the École Polytechnique de Montréal. This hate crime led the Canadian government to designate December 6 as The National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women.

Please join us in taking this opportunity to congratulate Rev. Dr. Lennett J. Anderson on his recent appointment as Lecturer in Leadership and Racial Justice at Acadia Divinity College.
