Roots run deep at Acadia, and we are proud of our diverse and extensive family tree. It has many branches, full of people who are committed to making a difference. Our alumni develop and refine academic and life skills during their time as students and then emerge, ready to take on the world after graduation, fully equipped to effect change as civic and community leaders.

All members of our alumni family have benefited from the rich and inclusive liberal arts education that is the hallmark of Acadia’s fine academics experience. The Acadia Alumni Association supports students during their time at Acadia and beyond, and encourages members of our outstanding community to stay in touch.

In an inspiring display of student leadership and commitment to the future of Acadia University, the Acadia Students' Union (ASU) has made a $2 million gift to the Build: The Student Centre campaign.

A night of celebration. That’s how Executive Director, Alumni Affairs Oonagh Proudfoot (’93, ’06) described the Acadia Alumni Awards Dinner at Pier 21 in Halifax on April 18, 2024. It was an opportunity to celebrate the very fabric of Acadia, as more than 300 Acadia alumni and friends came together to honour and applaud this year’s recipient of the Distinguished Alumni Award, Don Clow (’83), Acadia Alumni Faculty Award for Excellence in Teaching recipient Dr. Caroline Cochran, and The Athenaeum and Acadia Alumni Student of the Year Award recipient, Spencer Richard (’22, ’24).
