Today we celebrate Founders’ Day with exciting news about three new partnerships that demonstrate our emerging strategic plan, Acadia 2025, in action, and strengthen the values on which Acadia was founded in 1838.

On Wednesday, Oct. 23, 2019, Acadia University welcomed Dr. Cannon back to campus, who chatted with students and faculty, and announced an extraordinarily generous gift of $265,000 in support of Campaign for Acadia. A donor since 1989, Dr. Cannon’s latest gift will have a tremendous impact on Acadia, its students, faculty and staff for generations.

At the 49th Atlantic Schools of Business Conference at Cape Breton University the weekend of September 28 and 29, 2019, the Manning School of Business received the Best Research Performance Award. This award is given to the Business School whose faculty contributed the most research to the conference on a per capita basis (e.g., pro-rated number of faculty in the business school to number of papers submitted).

Dean of the Shannon School of Business, Dr. George Karaphillis, presented the award on behalf of the ASB Conference Executive. This photo was taken at the awards presentation to the Manning Faculty who attended the conference (Missing from photo: Kelly Dye).

The Canadian Research Knowledge Network (CRKN) is pleased to announce Christopher Callbeck—Acadia's Vice-President, Finance and Administration and Chief Financial Officer—as the recipient of the 2019 Ron MacDonald Distinguished Service Award. The award will be presented on October 16, 2019 in Ottawa, Ontario as part of the CRKN Access to Knowledge Conference.
