Our 200th starts now
The dawn of our third century
The countdown is on! In 2018, we’ll celebrate Dalhousie’s 200th anniversary.
Our anniversary year presents great opportunities to tell our stories, open our doors and build excitement for what’s ahead.
We are proud to be one of Canada’s first universities to mark 200 years of contribution to our country and our world. This is a time to reflect on all that has made us a Canadian thought leader, global educator and research powerhouse. It’s also a time to focus on what’s ahead—a new and unprecedented era when we will chart new paths, and extend the boundaries of knowledge and intellectual discovery
An anniversary like this can enhance Dalhousie’s reputation and build awareness, close to home and around the globe. That’s why a successful 200th has been identified as one of the university’s strategic priorities. Done well, our anniversary will help strengthen student enrolment, research funding and donor support.
It all takes place from September 2017 to December 2018.
But don’t wait until then to get involved. Many projects are already underway and you can share ideas, volunteer and begin planning with colleagues. Start now by identifying a Dal Original—one of Dalhousie’s pioneers, influencers or life changers who helped make us what we are, and whose stories we will honor and share in 2018.
We’ll continue to update this site as 200th planning progresses, so check back often.
