What's happening at Acadia

Acadia University will soon be recruiting for the inaugural Jarislowsky Chair in Trust and Political Leadership – one of five prestigious academic appointments at universities across Canada to lead a first-of-its-kind collaboration focused on educating future leaders in government, politics and the public service.

The Globe and Mail profiles the work of Acadia's Dr. Jennifer Provencher. Provencher has co-authored a new paper examining how climate change has caused microplastics — particularly those that have been evaporated into the atmosphere through the water cycle in other parts of the world — to be deposited into Arctic sea ice.

This May's Convocation ceremonies mark the full, in-person return of our annual tradition. We're thrilled to celebrate the Class of 2022 and the resilience and flexibility they showed in meeting the challenges of COVID-19.

Olivia Stevenson, a third-year honours undergraduate student in Kinesiology at Acadia University, has been awarded the prestigious 2022 3M National Student Fellowship. Presented by 3M Canada and the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLHE), the fellowship recognizes exceptional student leaders across Canada who are making a positive impact in higher education.
