Toward 2018

The dawn of our third century

2018 marks 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.

We’re marking this milestone with dozens of events and programs – from marquee speakers who will challenge us to think about today’s most important issues to original theatre and music, to family activities that welcome the entire community.

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.

We look forward to celebrating with you.
