Programming Announcement

Last updated March 19, 2020

Acadia University has announced that all in-person classes for students have been cancelled due to precautions related to the COVID-19 virus. The campus has also been closed to the general public.

We in the ALL program feel it is important that we exercise the same caution, so we have decided to cancel the remaining sessions of our winter term courses, as well our Lunchtime Learning Series. We will be contacting our registered course participants in the coming days with refund details.

It is our sincere hope that this decision will help limit the spread of the virus in our community. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at

Lunchtime Learning Series

Aerial view of the Acadia University campusEvery week, we invite ALL members and members of our local community to join us for a free, casual Lunchtime Learning session (formerly Brown Bag Lunch series).

We cover topics both big and small in scope, from local to international, and from arts to sciences. We aim to offer lively talks, from engaging speakers, that anyone in the audience can enjoy. No registration is required.

We will meet every Friday at noon beginning January 31, 2020 for the winter term. This term we are thrilled to announce we will be moving to the KC Irving Environmental Centre Auditorium for our sessions. The Irving Centre is located at 32 University Avenue. The room is located on the lower level of the building. There is a side-entrance on that level, or an elevator is available if you arrive on the main floor. Occasionally we may need to use an alternate space, but this will be clearly indicated below.  This room has limited seating, and due to fire regulations, we must close the door once the room is full, so please plan to arrive early.

Inclement Weather Cancellation Policy

Our general rule is if NSCC - Kingstec Campus is closed due to inclement weather, Acadia Lifelong Learning classes and events will be cancelled for that day, even if the Acadia University campus remains officially open. Please check local radio stations or our Facebook page for possible cancellation announcements.
