In 1989, 14 young women were targeted and killed because of their gender in a mass shooting at l'École Polytechnique de Montréal. Gender-based violence remains normalized, amplified by the COVID-19 pandemic, and exemplified in 2020’s tragic mass shooting, which took the lives of loved ones, including an Acadia graduate, Constable Heidi Stevenson.

Acadia University unveiled its new strategic plan, Acadia 2025, during an online campus-wide presentation on Friday, November 27, 2020.

The plan, developed over two years through extensive cross-campus consultation, finetunes Acadia's vision, mission, and values and identifies five strategic directions to guide the University toward 2025. The overarching theme for the plan is "transforming lives for a transforming world."

Acadia University, Dalhousie University and LuminUltra Technologies Ltd. have teamed up to determine the best way to test the wastewater coming from homes and businesses for traces of COVID-19. Wolfville’s municipal wastewater system is part of that research.

The researchers have detected COVID-19 in the town’s wastewater. This research is still experimental so can’t be considered definitive. But it could be a signal that COVID-19 is present in our community.
