Atlantic RDC

The Atlantic RDC (ARDC) is an inter-university facility serving researchers from Dalhousie University (DAL), Mount St. Vincent University (MSVU), St. Mary's University (SMU), Acadia University, and the University of PEI (UPEI). The centre was officially opened on May 28th, 2002.

In addition to offering a facility to access and process data, ARDC regularly hosts methodological workshops, brown bag lunches, graduate-level courses in social analysis of complex survey data, and seminars on a wide array of topics.

The establishment and continuing development of the centre is overseen by an inter-university committee chaired by Dr. Victor Thiessen.
