Associated Alumni rebrands as Acadia Alumni Association

The Associated Alumni of Acadia University has a new look and new name that reflects its ongoing commitment to more than 40,000 Acadia graduates worldwide.

The culmination of a year-long consultative process between the Associated Alumni, Acadia’s Office of Alumni Affairs and Revolve Branding and Marketing in Halifax, the Associated Alumni will now be known as the Acadia Alumni Association.

Its mission is to encourage and facilitate connections and growth among the global network of Acadia graduates, staff, family and friends to optimize their lives and attract people who believe they can change the world.

“We exist to enhance the lives of Acadia alumni, students, friends and family,” says Acadia Alumni Association president Geoff Irvine (’87). “There’s an immense sense of community on-campus that extends around the world because of our organization’s outreach. As a result of our support – through programs, initiatives, services and connections – we endeavour to lift alumni up and provide experiences for them that support the University community.”

The Association embraces excellence, leadership, innovation and engagement as pillars upon which to mobilize connections, cultivate Acadia’s transformative educational experience and champion growth globally by creating opportunities for others to shine.

“Acadia has allowed us to become responsible, contributing citizens of the world,” says Executive Director of Alumni Affairs Ian Murray (’88). “The Acadia Alumni Association is a continuation of the scholarly, social and professional opportunities our graduates experienced at Acadia to grow and make a sustainable difference at a meaningful level. Acadia attracts people who believe in change, and we want to do our best to support that commitment through alumni events, donor opportunities, student recruitment or research.”

Irvine adds that the rebranding initiative is a tremendous and positive step forward that reinforces the Association’s intent to bring about the unity of graduates and former students of Acadia and to afford Association members the opportunity to promote the University’s best interests.
