Welcome to Dalhousie

Dalhousie's Welcome to Dal Induction Ceremony is a unique celebration and tradition that welcomes new students and faculty to their/your new living and learning community. 

New members to the Dal community will be welcomed by Interim University President Teri Balser and Dalhousie Student Union President Aisha Abawajy. New students are invited to stand and take the Dalhousie University Pledge, a commitment to uphold the values foundational to being a member of the Dalhousie community, as you receive your black and gold Dalhousie scarf.

Faculty, Staff and Student Leader Pledge

Today, as each of you stand, you commit yourselves to the academic success of students in the lifelong learning process.

Will you, as Dalhousie University faculty, staff and student leaders, promise to provide students with an enriched learning experience; with academic challenge through active and collaborative interactions; and with a supportive and engaging campus environment? 

Please respond ‘I Will’.
