Brooke Edwards l Director


I graduated from Dalhousie with my BA and MA in Social Anthropology.

I'm passionate about post-secondary student experience and success, and work to develop programs and initiatives that are directly informed by industry research, data collection, and student feedback. Ensuring that we are meeting current Engineering students' needs is our priority.

Having supported post-secondary students in different areas at Dalhousie throughout my career, I have come to realize that everyone’s goals and priorities vary depending on life circumstances. I focus on providing support to students by meeting them where they are at, by creating safe space for all, and by implementing programming that aims to enhance student experience on Sexton Campus.

My goal is for all Engineering students to access the Centre in one way or another throughout their time at Dalhousie.
