What's happening at Acadia

Sacred music, readings and prayers illuminated the evening service to induct Reverend Dr. Marjorie Lewis as Acadia University Chaplain. The service was held at the Manning Memorial Chapel on Sunday, November 21, 2021.

“In becoming our Chaplain, the Rev. Dr. Lewis has recorded several historic firsts for Acadia,” said Acadia University President and Vice-Chancellor Dr. Peter Ricketts, who presided over the formal induction. “And she has already made a significant impact on the campus. I am delighted to welcome her to our University community formally.”

Dr. Peter Ricketts, Acadia University President and Vice-Chancellor, signed the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals Accord (SDG Accord) on Wednesday, November 24, 2021 on behalf of the institution. Acadia becomes the first Canadian university to commit to the United Nations goals by signing the SDG Accord.

“Acadia University has committed to the sustainable development goals as a way to collectively respond to the immense challenges the world faces around climate change, public health issues, and depletion of our natural resources,” says Dr. Ricketts. “In signing the Accord, I am fulfilling one of Acadia’s strategic plan objectives to ensure that as a university, we are doing our part to make a difference and contribute to this important global movement.”

Acadia University is one of more than 40 universities and colleges across Canada that will officially sign a charter vowing to redress anti-Black racism and foster Black inclusion in higher education.

The online Scarborough Charter launch and signing event is set to occur from 3 to 4 p.m. ET on November 18. It will feature a panel discussion and question-and-answer segment with audience members.

Acadia University students had the opportunity to learn about native and invasive plants during the Race to Meet Your Wild Neighbours this month. The event, designed by students from the Community Program Design course (CODE 3023) taught participants about the good and the bad plants that are present on campus and gave them ideas about how to help prevent the spread of invasive species.
