The year 2012 also marked the 35th anniversary of the Mount’s highly-regarded Bachelor of Public Relations program. All across the globe, Mount PR grads are making a difference in industry, non-profit, and the public sectors by bringing their stories to life.
Distance Learning and Continuing Education (DLCE) recognized their 30th anniversary this past year. The occasion was marked by bringing together staff, students, and faculty who have been part of the Mount’s successful outreach to distance education students over the past three decades.
It was also the 20th anniversary for two important cornerstones of the Mount community. The Nova Scotia Centre on Aging celebrated its 20th anniversary with a high-profile national conference called “Our Future Is Aging”. The Centre for Women in Business also marked 20 years dedicated to supporting local and regional women business leaders and entrepreneurs.
The year 2013 promises to be no less exciting. We’re marking 140 years of history and an impressive legacy of commitment to the advancement of women, to social justice, and to supporting and nurturing accessible learning for all members of our community. We recently launched our Facebook Timeline to mark some of the key moments in our collective history. I’m hopeful that our recent work with Nova Scotia’s Mi’kmaq communities, the hiring of our first Aboriginal student advisor, and the opening of the Mount Aboriginal Friendship Centre will help ensure that we serves the needs of an under-presented Nova Scotian community on our campus.
