Through generous gifts from a wide variety of alumni donors, and in support of the University’s commitment to anti-racism, Acadia is pleased to announce the Edwin Borden Awards.
Named in honour of Edwin Borden, an Acadia alumnus who was one of the first Black individuals in Canada to be granted a Bachelor’s (1892) and Master’s (1896), these awards will recognize community engagement and leadership among Black Acadia students. Borden was from Truro, Nova Scotia, and went on to earn a PhD and enjoy a distinguished career as a church leader and college president in the United States.
The Campaign for Acadia concluded successfully in December 2020, reaching and surpassing its $75-million goal with a final tally of $86.8 million to support students, faculty, staff and campus infrastructure under each of the four Campaign pillars: Transform; Discover; Inspire; and Build.
