At Acadia University, they’re proud of their family tree. It’s filled with those who have made a difference and made their mark on the world. They trace their roots to 1838, when Baptist leaders reached a breaking point in their ability to access higher education. If they could not become students or teachers at other universities because of their denomination, they would create their own university and remove barriers for themselves and others. Founded in 1838, Acadia University is one of the oldest and most respected liberal arts universities in Canada. Located just a one-hour drive from Halifax, Nova Scotia and its international airport, Acadia is an integral part of the quintessential college town of Wolfville, overlooking the Annapolis Valley and the Bay of Fundy. When you step onto campus you enter a world of opportunity. The mission of Acadia University is to provide a personalized and rigorous liberal education, promote a robust and respectful scholarly community, and inspire a diversity of students to become critical thinkers, lifelong learners, engaged citizens, and responsible global leaders.
