Acadia’s world-class research facilities rival the largest institutions. With our unique location and small campus, Acadia fosters collaboration across disciplines and with industry, community, and sister institutions.
On behalf of the Acadia University community, President Peter Ricketts is pleased to join the presidents of the nine other Nova Scotian universities as signatories to an Open Letter to all Nova Scotia Students, encouraging them to press on with their education plans and to attend one of our province’s wonderful universities.
On a topic of personal importance to me and picking up on my earlier messages to you on June 2 and in the June 19 campus e-newsletter, I am announcing today that I am establishing a President’s Anti-Racism Task Force (PART).
As we work toward Fall 2020, know that each of us will play a part in the next chapter of Acadia's history as we re-open our campus during a global pandemic. It is the first time we will be offering a hybrid model of course delivery, and the first time we will have a mandatory accessory - masks.
Acadia University is continuing a phased approach to reopening its campus, which began on July 6, starting with essential employees and research activities and clients of privately-run sports therapy and performance training businesses in the Athletics Complex.
Although most buildings remain closed, members of the general public are now permitted to walk across the campus providing they follow Acadia’s social distancing and mask protocols, and do not to gather in groups, linger, or hold any activities on the University grounds.
