It was a celebration 200 years in the making — but there was much more to Dal’s 2018-19 than just the university’s bicentennial.

Some of the most impactful stories of Dal’s past year can be found in Imagine: Dalhousie University Community Report 2018-19. The report, released this week, showcases work across the university to grow new opportunities, strengthen community connections and “imagine” new ways of working together.

“Dal’s 200th anniversary was as much about our future as it was about our past ­— and this report offers a glimpse into how our students, faculty and staff and partners are starting to build our third century of achievement, one great idea at a time,” says Brian Leadbetter, director of communications and public relations for Dalhousie.

The Community Report aligns with other institutional reports (including the annual Inspiration and Impact progress report published in June), but is distinguished in emphasizing stories, projects and experiences that demonstrate Dalhousie’s impact in its local community and across the region, country and world.

In addition to highlights from the past year, the report includes four feature spotlights: on student Tabea Marzlin, one of the first-year students supported by the Faculty of Computer Science’s new Women in Technology Scholarships; on Margaret Robinson, faculty member in the Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology, and her work to build more inclusive classroom spaces; on the Imhotep’s Legacy Academy outreach program and its efforts to support youth of African descent in discovering STEM opportunities; and on Dal 200’s Year of Belonging and the inspiring conversations it helped foster.

Imagine: Dalhousie Community Report 2018-19 is now available online, and is being shared with community partners. A supporting print edition will be distributed to select stakeholders as well. The publication is developed and designed by the university’s Communications and Marketing team.
