Supporting Academic Leaders at Dalhousie

Dalhousie Competencies

Competencies are the foundation for many HR functions including recruitment and selection, performance management, learning and development, and succession planning. Dalhousie’s Competencies were created through a university-wide consultative process during 2013-2014.

Since 2016, the Human Resources Department has supported Faculties and Departments through initiatives to integrate the competencies into these HR functions. For information on planned activities, please contact Joanne Fraser (, Manager, Learning and Development.
