As 2018 comes to an end and we prepare to welcome the New Year, we want to take a moment to reminisce on some of the year’s most exciting highlights. 2018 has been a year of growth and celebration here at CBU, and we’re so thankful to our community for sharing in this incredible journey with us. We’re #CBUProud to present, (in no particular order) the highlights of 2018!
We Got a New President!
We started our year off with a brand new President and Vice-Chancellor, David C. Dingwall. It was a careful and comprehensive selection process and we came out on top with a leader who is dedicated to the continual growth and quality of Cape Breton University.
We Underwent a Strategic Planning Process
We’re proud to end 2018 with a strong strategic plan that will guide our decision-making over the next five years. Through a process of discussions, community events and incredible cooperation, the plan was developed and will support our university as it continues to thrive for years to come.
We Developed New Partnerships
CBU values cooperation and working together for the common good, so we’re proud of the MOU agreements and other partnerships that came together in 2018.
Our Students Shared Their Stories
We love when our talented and hardworking students share their stories with the community. We’re so proud of everything they have accomplished in 2018 and can’t wait to see what they achieve next.
Our CAPERS Soccer Teams Made AUS History
For the first time ever, both the Men’s and Women’s soccer teams from the same university won the AUS Championship in back-to-back years. We’ll be looking for the three-peat next season!
