Crandall University Hosts Science Atlantic Conference for Aquaculture & Fisheries and Biology

Moncton – Over 100 Science students and faculty from 13 universities across the Atlantic Provinces descended on the Crandall University campus to present research projects to peers and professors alike at Science Atlantic’s 2019 Aquaculture & Fisheries and Biology conference.

With the stated goal of “connecting science education and research,” Science Atlantic’s various conferences cover a wide range of fields, and are held annually at universities across the Maritimes.

The Aquaculture & Fisheries and Biology conference took place over three days in March, with participating students submitting either posters or oral presentations of research findings for various projects relating to these fields. Projects were judged by a panel of professors and representatives from Science Atlantic, with awards presented at the end of the conference.

Students who presented at the conference also had the opportunity to have their abstracts published in an academic journal, to be released later this year.

The conference also featured two keynote speakers, Dr. Diana Hamilton of Mount Allison University, and Dr. Stefanie Colombo or Dalhousie University, presenting research for the Biology and Aquaculture & Fisheries portions of the conference respectively.

Dr. Zhan Yang of Crandall’s Biology department served as coordinator for the conference, working with Crandall faculty and administration as well as the participating universities to put the weekend together after winning the bid to host this year’s event.

Special thanks to Science Atlantic, the conference sponsors, the students and faculty of the participating universities, and the team of student volunteers that made this event possible.

New Certificate in Business for International Students

Man in suit reading Business paper

Moncton – For a number of years now, Canadian universities have been experiencing the effects of the challenging demographic changes. The number of students completing high school in Canada continues to fall, causing more and more public schools to close or downsize every year, due to falling enrollment. As a result, more recruitment of university age young people is being done in the international market, with more agencies working around the world to recruit students for universities across Canada.

Crandall University has been making efforts to address this situation as well, and has recently begun actively recruiting students internationally. New programs have been developed as part of the initiative, and a Dean of International Academic Programs has been appointed to offer leadership in this area, Dr. Dannie Brown.

Business-Focused International Programs

The latest internationally-focused program, a Certificate in Business, is launching in the fall of 2019. This one year program is designed to allow international students to study the fundamentals of business, either after graduating from high school, or as a post-graduate certificate for those who have an undergraduate degree in a discipline other than business. The program also allows students to further their studies in business at Crandall should they desire to do so.

The Certificate in Business joins Crandall’s international offerings alongside the International Bachelor of Commerce (IBCom) – a two-plus-two program that allows international students complete the first two years of an undergraduate business degree in their own country before coming to Canada to complete the final two years at Crandall. In addition to these internationally-focused programs, many students also enroll in Crandall’s other undergraduate and graduate programs.

Education and immigration

One of the attractions of studying in Canada is that education is often seen as a pathway to immigration. Students who complete academic programs at Crandall are eligible to apply for the Post Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) offered by the Government of Canada. Programs like the ones offered at Crandall allow students to consider starting a new life in Canada through immigration pathways.

Dr. Brown, who has spent much of the last ten years working with international students, knows that Canada is high on the target list of countries where international students are hoping to study: “Canada has so much to offer international students today by way of a quality university education and increasing job opportunities.”

Robert MacDonald, the University’s Stephen S. Steeves Professor in Business and member of the committee that selected Emily for the award, agreed: “Over her four years of study in our business program Emily has demonstrated a quiet and consistent pursuit of excellence in academics with a great deal of integrity. She serves as a fine example to her peers, and our Faculty is extraordinarily proud of her success.”

Education Department Launches French Immersion Certificate

Moncton – With growing needs in New Brunswick’s public school system for teachers – particularly in French Immersion classrooms – Crandall University has launched a new French Immersion Education Certificate program to better prepare teachers to meet the needs of French Immersion students.

The certificate comprises three courses and can be taken as part of Crandall’s Bachelor of Education program, and because the courses are offered on weekends, it is also designed to be accessible to graduates and current teachers who wish to enroll. Classes will be conducted in French, and are intended to benefit Francophone students as well as Anglophone students who meet the French language proficiency requirements of New Brunswick’s Anglophone school districts.

The Education Faculty at Crandall University are thrilled to offer this new certificate program for our Anglophone and Francophone students planning to teach in the French Immersion program. Dr. Wendy Bokhorst-Heng, Associate Professor of Education, stated “our new offering is designed to provide pre-service and in-service teachers with the tools they need to best support student learning.” The teaching strategies and learning theories taught in this certificate program will enhance Crandall’s strong tradition of excellence in education.​

According to a spokesperson at the Anglophone East School District,

“The Anglophone East School District encourages its educators to pursue all opportunities to improve their level of French proficiency based on the current demands in the system for qualified French Immersion teachers. Programs like the French Immersion Certificate at Crandall University serve to address the current needs in the system.”

The first course of the program will take place during Crandall’s spring term in May/June 2019.

2019 Crandall Faculty Awards

On Friday evening, four of Crandall’s faculty members were presented with awards for excellence in teaching, service, and research. The Stephen & Ella Steeves Awards provide the opportunity each year to celebrate the contributions of the faculty to their respective fields and to the university’s mission of Transforming lives through quality university education firmly rooted in the Christian faith.

Each year, recipients are nominated by students, staff, and faculty, to be selected by a committee of their peers. These individuals have not only contributed greatly to their respective fields, but they are also highly respected among staff, faculty and students at Crandall University.

“It is no easy task for the committee to select the recipients,” said Dr. Jon Ohlhauser, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs. “Each year, any number of our faculty members more than qualify, and we have to narrow it down to four.”

The award for teaching was presented to Dr. Abram Steen of Crandall’s English Department and Dr. Seth Crowell of the Sociology Department; the award for research was presented to Education professor Dr. Wendy Bokhorst-Heng; and, the award for service was presented to Business professor Robert MacDonald.

Also during the evening, special recognition was given to Professor Emerita Dr. Carol Thorne who retired in December after a lifetime of teaching, having taught at every iteration of the institution (UBBTS, ABC, ABU, and Crandall).

Congratulations to this year’s recipients – the passionate work of faculty like these four is truly appreciated!

Dr. Ted Newell releases book on the history of education from a Christian perspective

Ted Newell, Ed.D.Dr. Ted Newell of Crandall’s Education department, has released a new book discussing the history of education from a Christian perspective.

Education: A Student’s Guide, is part of the series, “Reclaiming the Christian Intellectual Tradition,” edited by David S. Dockery, and shows how exploring Christian thinking about education throughout history can equip educators today to reclaim their task.

Education has the power to shape a culture, influencing the formation and transmission of cherished traditions, foundational narratives, and core values across generations. This guide seeks to reclaim a vision for a distinctly Christian approach to education aimed at fostering a renewal of Christianity in our day.

John Milbank, Professor Emeritus at the University of Nottingham, said of Dr. Newell’s book: “A future Christian revival may depend on the development of a Christian alternative to our current mode of education, which has surrendered to liberal, managerialist, and technocratic ideology. A Christian alternative can potentially exercise mass appeal and therefore prove the most effective instrument of mission for the future. Ted Newell has produced an immensely useful handbook for this task. I thoroughly recommend it.”

Education: A Student's Guide

About the series

In an interview with The Gospel Coalition, series editor David Dockery described the collection this way:

“The ‘Reclaiming the Christian Intellectual Tradition’ series is designed to provide an overview for the distinctive way the church has read the Bible, formulated doctrine, provided education, and engaged the culture through the centuries. The various contributors to the series all agree that personal faith and genuine Christian piety are essential for Christian living and for service in the church.”

Authors involved in the series answer the following questions, each in the context of their own topic:

  • How does the Christian faith influence our understanding of culture, literature, philosophy, government, beauty, art, or work?
  • How does the Christian intellectual tradition help us understand truth?
  • How does the Christian intellectual tradition shape our approach to education?

Dockery goes on to say, “We believe that the series … meets an important need because the secular culture in which we now find ourselves is, at best, indifferent to the Christian faith, and the Christian world—at least in its popular forms—tends to be confused about the Christian faith.”

The books deal with a wide array of topics, including Art and Music, Literature, Science, and more, with Dr. Newell’s entry on Education being the latest release in the series.

Education: A Student’s Guide is available now from Crossway in both print and digital formats, as well as from a variety of other retailers.

Crandall University signs articulation agreement with College of Business Studies in Nicosia, Cyprus.

Moncton – Crandall University (CU) is pleased to announce the signing of an articulation agreement with the College of Business Studies (CBS) in Nicosia, Cyprus.

This agreement would see students at CBS complete the first two years of a four-year International Bachelor of Commerce (IBCom) degree in Cyprus and the last two years at CU.

This is the second articulation agreement signed in 2018; the first was earlier this year with a university in India. Crandall University has begun an initiative for recruiting students from around the world. Currently there are students from 21 different countries represented at CU.

Dr. Dannie Brown, Dean of International Academic Programs at CU said, “This agreement with CBS creates a great opportunity for Crandall to increase its student population in a time of declining domestic enrolments, and to provide students from CBS a unique Canadian educational experience.” Students who complete the IBCom at Crandall are then eligible to apply for the Post Graduation Work Permit offered by the Government of Canada.

Andreas Kizourides, Director of Administration and Finance at CBS added, “We welcome the opportunity to work with Crandall University in implementing this forward-thinking partnership, as together we serve the educational interests and needs of students who wish to study in Canada.”

In addition to the IBCom, CU offers a Master of Organizational Management specifically designed for the international market, with an intake in January and again in September. These programs, plus others that are still in development, are intended to provide pathways for students from around the world to come to Canada.

Crandall University receives $150,000 grant to bolster international efforts

Moncton – Crandall University has been selected as a recipient of a $150,000 grant for the development of programs and resources to attract more international students to Atlantic Canada.

The grant is provided by Stronger Philanthropy, a collaborative giving circle of major private donors and foundations which seek to enable significant investment into innovation for Canada’s Christian charities. The Stronger Together grants, totaling over $1M in 2018, were awarded to charitable organizations based on a number of criteria, but primarily to organizations who are seeking to advance an innovative and creative solution to an existing community need.

Stronger Together Grants

The grant money received by Crandall will be used as part of a campaign to attract students from outside of Canada, to develop pathway agreements with universities in other countries, and to launch programs intended to serve the students who come.

“We are deeply appreciative of the generous grant we received through Stronger Philanthropy,” said Crandall President Dr. Bruce Fawcett. “These funds have made it possible for us to launch a focused effort to recruit more international students – a segment of our student population we anticipate will grow in the coming years. As a privately-funded university, we rely on financial support from private sources to launch new initiatives and we are grateful for the confidence this gift shows in our medium term strategic plan.”

Crandall is already seeing an increase in the number of international students, primarily from India, and expects those numbers to increase each semester over the next few years. Because post-secondary education is a key pathway to immigration for those who wish to come to Canada, Crandall is able to contribute to the immigration goals of the Maritime Provinces.

Crandall is approved by the federal government as a Designated Learning Institution to receive international students. Additionally, international students who graduate from Crandall are eligible to apply for a post-graduation work permit, enabling them to enter into the life and workforce of the region.

Crandall University is Atlantic Canada’s leading Liberal Arts University rooted in the Christian Faith, with undergraduate programs in Arts, Business Administration, Science, and Education, and graduate programs in Education and Organizational Management. To learn more, visit or call 1-888-968-6228.
