Meet our team

Director, International Centre

Adam Christie

Adam is newly-arrived at Dalhousie, having spent much of the past 20 years in International and Student Affairs at Mount Allison University.  Adam is excited to join the International Centre team and extend the same warm welcome to students that he has received himself.  Adam grew up on Canada’s West Coast, but now calls the East Coast home.  He has lived in several countries and speaks several languages with varying degrees of proficiency.  He is an avid hockey fan and happiest when hiking in high places.  Adam holds an undergraduate degree in History and a Master’s degree in Education, with other formal and informal life-learning experiences along the way. Please be sure to stop by the International Centre to say hello!
