Dalhousie s interim president, Teri Balser, says Brison is a "respected and accomplished leader" whose experience will benefit the Halifax school across North America and globally.
Brison, who becomes Dalhousie s eighth chancellor, earned a Bachelor of Commerce Degree from the university in 1989.
He formerly served 22 years as the MP for the Nova Scotia riding of Kings-Hants.
Brison was serving as president of the Treasury Board when he announced his resignation from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau s cabinet last January.
