Open Acadia is Acadia University's initiative to offer flexible programming and learning opportunities to Acadia students and the greater community. Our programming goes beyond the scope of the conventional university experience to offer education to youths, seniors, and working professionals.
We extend our thanks to all those who participated in this year's Graduate Education Summer Conference Day. Over 200 educators participated in the conference, contributing their energy to very informative sessions from keynote speakers Dr. Lorri Neilsen Glenn, Rola AbiHanna, Dr. Dale Lonis, and Andrea Currie.
Several external organizations offer scholarships for students pursuing continuing education opportunities such as online learning. Some Open Acadia students may be eligible for, and interested in, applying for the Mary Cone Barrie Scholarship.
Offered in memory of Dr. Mary Cone Barrie, Director of Continuing Studies at the University of Toronto, two $2,500 scholarships are available each year. For more information, please visit the scholarship website; applications are due July 12, 2013.
