A modern-day pioneer in cancer research is honouring a similar pioneer from the last century. Allen Eaves (’62) is funding the creation of a larger-than-life bronze portrait of Charles Huggins, who graduated from Acadia in 1920.

The Acadia Alumni Association has doubled its commitment to COVID-19 relief at Acadia to $100,000 by adding another $40,000 to the Student Relief Fund and earmarking $10,000 for immediate aid for international students.

The Acadia Alumni Association has designated former General Manager of the Acadia Students’ Union Ian Morrison as an Honorary Alumnus for his outstanding contributions to the Acadia community over the past 25 years.

The Acadia Alumni Association is proud to announce that Dr. Ian Spooner is the recipient of this year’s Acadia Alumni Faculty Award for Excellence in Teaching.

The Association announced this week a $50,000 donation to the recently established COVID-19 Student Relief Fund to help provide bursary support in variable amounts to second, third and fourth-year students facing ongoing and/or summer employment disruption or other financial difficulties as a result of the pandemic.

In the midst of our new reality of virtual connectedness, it’s more important than ever to put yourself out there - or lend a helping hand. Many students are feeling lost and unsure, are less busy than usual, and seeking more human contact amidst COVID-19.
