Dalhousie University Community Report 2017–18

President’s Message

This year, Dalhousie marks 200 years of achievement — our moment to reflect on how far we’ve come, and to dream about what our future has in store. In our first two centuries, we’ve grown from a “little college by the sea” to a national university, and the leading research university in Atlantic Canada. Now, it is time for us to take our place as a global institution and the leading research university for Atlantic Canada.

But we can’t do it alone.

The stories in this year’s report highlight what’s possible when we work together to inspire and support our best and brightest, when we strengthen our connections, and when we draw on the diverse strengths of all our people.

Turning 200
Two hundred years of academic excellence, transformational research and community building have led to this milestone moment in Dalhousie’s history. As we embark on our third century, our legacy lives in our contributions to the community and the impact we make around the world.
And the story continues with you. Whether you’ve been a student or the parent of one, a donor, a mentor or a community partner, you have helped us reach this milestone.
Thank you.
