An exceptional education requires constant innovation. Dalhousie is committed to a culture of innovation that ensures our students’ success and provides educational opportunities that are on the cutting edge.

State-of-the-Art Technology

Whether it’s a more powerful microscope, the latest research software or the most realistic simulation equipment, to educate leaders, we need to give student access to the most up-to-date resources and build courses that give them the opportunity to perfect their skills.

Supporting Student Success

We know our student have the intellectual capacity to succeed. But university is a life-altering experience. That kind of growth often comes with challenges, failures and bumps in the road. We want our students to have access to the supports they need to navigate these trials that go hand-in-hand with growth – to ensure their academic, personal and professional success.

Launching Leaders

Unique programs across Dal’s campus like CDL Atlantic, the Emera ideaHUB and Lab2Market help students transition into professional life as entrepreneurs and innovators. They highlight the role that innovation plays in keeping businesses sustainable and driving the economy.
