Dalhousie’s vibrant and diverse community is made up of thousands of faculty and staff who are committed to helping the university fulfils its mission of teaching and learning excellence; world-leading research and innovation; and service to our local, national and global communities.

On June 9, Dal held its annual Milestones Tea to honour the contributions of more than 60 faculty and staff with long service to the university. Employees from all faculties, departments and units re invited to come together to celebrate their 25, 35 and 45 years of service at the event, held in the Atrium of the Steele Ocean Sciences Building. Many employees bring their managers, supervisors or family members with them to help celebrate the special occasion.

Nancy Gibbons, administrator in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience, is one of just two recipients this year who marked an extraordinary milestone – 45 years of service at Dalhousie.

“I feel very fortunate to have worked at Dalhousie University for my entire career, and I am pleased that the university takes the opportunity to recognize the milestones that its staff members have achieved,” says Gibbons.

“I will retire from the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience next month with 46 years of service, and have many positive memories to take with me.”
