Welcome (back) to Science Atlantic! 

If you’ve been invited to view this page, you are your institution’s Science Atlantic representative. You are one of 17 voting members who determine the direction of the organization. We would like to take this opportunity to specially welcome our newest member, Nova Scotia Community College. We are truly excited for you to be a part of the 2019-2020 Science Atlantic conference season.

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.

Founded over 50 years ago, Science Atlantic currently represents 16 post-secondary institutes and campuses, with a governing Board, a dozen committees, and the involvement of approximately 200 faculty, scientists, and administrators from across the region. Each institution has a representative on each relevant committee, and is represented as a whole by the Dean or equivalent.

The membership elects a Board annually that is comprised of representatives of member institutions, committees, and other community members. 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.
