"From humble beginnings in 1818 as "the little college by the sea," Dalhousie University has grown to be an influential Canadian thought leader, global educator, research powerhouse, and economic driver. Today, Dal has more than 18,000 students across 12 faculties, over 2,500 staff, and more than 125,000 alumni spread across the country and around the globe. Dalhousie University: A 200th Anniversary Portrait tells the story of this historic university. Opening with an epic poem by celebrated poet and alumnus George Elliott Clarke, this visual history explores Dalhousie's past, its present influence, and its future through images, artifacts, and documents. Addressing themes as diverse as the university's campuses, student life, academic research, and teaching, as well as the impact of Dalhousie and its alumni on the wider world, this image-rich book highlights the contributions of students, faculty, and staff and the larger community that make up the university known simply as Dal."--From publisher.
