Dr. Richard Florizone

Welcome to Dalhousie—and to the many exciting opportunities and experiences that await.

At Dalhousie, students, faculty and staff from around the world are part of nearly two centuries of academic excellence in this great community by the sea. Dalhousie has come a long way since its founding in 1818; with campuses in Halifax and Truro, and programs in Yarmouth and Saint John – our impact is felt across the Maritimes and beyond.

A member of the U15, we are proud to host more than 4,000 courses across 180 degree programs in 12 faculties – one of the broadest selections of academic choice in Canada. We have the highest proportion of out-of-province enrolment of any major research university in Canada, along with a growing, vibrant international student population. This diversity enriches our classes, our campus, and our communities.

During your time at Dalhousie, you will embark on an adventure that will transform you. I can’t wait to see where your journey takes you.
