About the Growing Communities Event Series: In 2018, Dalhousie will celebrate its 200th anniversary. Dalhousie's Human Resources department and Dalhousie Professional & Managerial Group (DPMG) developed a shared vision to celebrate this anniversary in the form of a legacy event. The intent is to host an annual event focused on serving the needs of our external community through access to Dal's resources, services and partners.
