NS introduces legislation to enable Dal-NSAC merger

May 8, 2012

The Nova Scotia government introduced legislation Tuesday to formalize the planned merger of Dalhousie University and Nova Scotia Agricultural College. The legislation gives authority for a formal merger agreement to be signed this spring, consistent with the terms of an agreement in principle announced in late March. The target date for the merger has been moved from July 1 to September 1 to allow enough time to finalize details of the formal agreement and engage the campus in transition preparations. NSAC faculty and staff will officially become employees of Dal on September 1. NS News Release
