Who we are

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.  Our programs are delivered in ways that match the preferences of our client groups, whether it be on-campus, off-campus, or online.

What's in a name?

Formerly known as the Division of Continuing & Distance Education, we became Open Acadia to better convey the breadth of our audiences and programs.  "Open" signifies our imperative for Acadia to reach different audiences and explore different educational methods, media, and programs.
