Learn About the Experiences of Atlantic Canadian Faculty

Passionate about Mentorship
“I will always be a mentor... I still help students that graduated 25 years ago. I'm proud and so honoured to do it. That's what life is about.”
Driven by Student Success
"The aspects that bring me the most satisfaction are helping students be successful and overcoming challenges."
Committed to Service
"The service work has been quite rewarding in terms of improving the academic life of the university, enhancing the employment life for faculty and developing opportunities for students.”

We spoke with Atlantic Canadian faculty about their experiences in the post-secondary STEM community with the goal of learning how Science Atlantic might be able to both broaden and enhance community engagement.
