Welcome (back) to Science Atlantic!

If you’ve been invited to view this page, you are your institution’s Science Atlantic representative, one of the 17 voting members who determine the direction of the organization.

Founded in 1962, Science Atlantic is a registered charitable association with a mission to advance post-secondary science education and research in Atlantic Canada by providing opportunities that foster and enrich students, supporting and inspiring researchers and educators, and using our collective voice to address important regional science issues.

We would like to take this opportunity to specially welcome our newest member, Nova Scotia Community College. We are excited to have you join us!

The current Chair of Science Atlantic is Christian Lacroix, University of Prince Edward Island. All Institutional Representatives, Board, and Committee Chairs can be found on our member page.
