What's happening at Acadia

Up to 60% of Nova Scotian counsellors experience work-related ‘compassion fatigue’. Acadia University professor and researcher Tanya Surette is leading a project that will follow the development of counsellors over a sustained period of time to learn more about what helps and what hinders their mental wellness and ability to thrive.

Dear students, faculty, and staff,

As we head into 2021, we can all be proud of getting to this day - starting our winter term! Enjoy the opportunities to grow that are ahead, both the successes and the "failures," because this semester, we are all learning and growing in new ways.

In the fall of 2020 Acadia University announced the launch of a new Master of Science in Environmental Science Program. This is an exciting development for the university, now students engaged in interdisciplinary environmental science research will have the option to choose a degree program that accurately reflects their work.

Student Lauren Muzak Ruff will be the first graduate of the new program, she successfully defended her thesis on December 16, 2020. Lauren is supervised by Dr. Ian Spooner, Research Director at the K.C. Irving Environmental Science Centre and Dr. Mark Mallory, Canada Research Chair and biology professor at Acadia University.
