Congratulations to Dr. Colin King (’17), recipient of this year's Acadia Alumni Association Faculty Award for Excellence in Teaching. If a single line could possibly encapsulate Dr. King’s teaching philosophy, it might very well be: “instead of being a sage on the stage, aim to be a guide on the side.”

There was certainly magic in the air at Pier 21 in Halifax on April 28, 2022 when more than 200 Acadia alumni and friends gathered for this year’s Acadia Alumni Dinner, honouring Distinguished Alumni and Outstanding Young Alumni Award recipients Dr. Trevor Jain (’93) and Lucas Oickle (’13).

Marc’s Lounge in Charlottetown was the place to be for Acadia alumni on Thursday, April 14, 2022 as Vice-President, Advancement (Interim) Nancy Handrigan ('92), and Executive Director, Alumni Affairs Oonagh Proudfoot ('93, '06) welcomed guests to an in-person event on Prince Edward Island.

Saint John, NB, was the second stop on our Maritime swing this week and an enthusiastic group of Acadia alumni were on hand at Gahan House Port City for a lovely in-person gathering.

We are back on the road again, and were delighted to join Acadia alumni at the Gusto Italian Grill and Bar in Moncton, New Brunswick on Tuesday, April 12, 2022 for an in-person gathering.

It’s likely that many in the Acadia community are unaware that the Acadia Alumni Association appoints 12 people to the University’s Board of Governors.

These appointments are well worth acknowledging and celebrating, especially since this diverse array of volunteers lend significant and valuable experience and expertise to the University, its leadership and members of the Acadia community. The Alumni Association Vice-President (appointed in their second year), President (for their two-year term) and Past-President (for their one-year term) hold two of the 12 appointments to the Board of Governors at any given time. Donalda MacBeath (’75) and Matt Rios (’14) currently fulfill these roles.
