MSVU begins 150th anniversary celebration year


Mount Saint Vincent University has officially begun a year-long celebration of its 150th anniversary. MSVU has launched a 150th anniversary website section and the MSVU 150 Fund: Access & Impact Fund to support those with barriers to education. The launch event included a presentation by Raymond Sewell from the Pabineau First Nation and Mi’kmaq dancer Jesse Benjamin of the Eskasoni First Nation, as well as reflections on the university from community members. “For 150 years now, MSVU has been challenging the status quo, opening doors to higher education that otherwise remain closed,” said MSVU President Dr Joël Dickinson. “For 150 years, we’ve been more than a place of learning – we’ve been a place of letting go of old ideas and unlearning outdated perspectives.”
