In August 2019, Dalhousie became one of six new members joining, and just the second Canadian member in, the Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning (CIRTL) Network, a network that counts Columbia, Cornell, Yale, UBC, other major research universities across North America as current members.  

CIRTL @ DAL will focus on supporting graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty, and staff to build university capacity for reaching and teaching diverse learners.

As members of CIRTL Dalhousie faculty, staff and students can take advantage of free online professional development opportunities, and get access to resources, communities, and support.  It is also a space for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty, and staff to engage with peers across the network through centrally coordinated activities across the various institutions.
