Dalhousie University’s executive director, Athletics and Recreation Tim Maloney is pleased to announce that Andrew Harding has been appointed as the Associate Director, Athletic Services at the Dalhousie Agricultural Campus.

Harding started his career at Dalhousie in 2009 as the campus recreation coordinator for the Studley Campus. His strength and experience with high performance sport, intramurals and club sports made him an ideal candidate to lead our athletic and recreation efforts on the Agricultural Campus.

“Andrew has consistently demonstrated outstanding performance over the last 10 years within Athletics & Recreation at Dalhousie,” says Maloney. “His skill set, experience and leadership position him for success in his new role on the Agricultural Campus.”

Holding both a Master of Arts (Leisure Studies) and a Master of Public Administration from Dalhousie University, Harding has been the driving force behind the growth of the campus recreation programs and camps on the Halifax Campuses. Before coming to Dalhousie, Harding was the executive director of the Orienteering Association of Nova Scotia, a youth engagement coordinator with Recreation Nova Scotia, and the executive director of the Nova Scotia Badminton Association.

“It's an exciting opportunity to build on the strong athletics foundation that has been built over the past several decades,” says Harding. “I'm looking forward to working with the staff, students and community partners to explore new collaborative opportunities to grow recreation and competitive sport at the Dalhousie Agricultural Campus.”

Harding will make the transition from Halifax to the Agricultural Campus starting February 25, 2019, and will focus on leading a broad range of interuniversity varsity programs including the Rams teams within the Atlantic Collegiate Athletic Association (ACAA) and Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA).
