The Maple League Empowers you to be a CHANGE MAKER

Members of the Maple League – Acadia, Bishop’s, Mount Allison, and St. Francis Xavier – believe that higher education should provide a balanced and comprehensive experience that challenges our young people and prepares them for responsible, ethical, and sustainable leadership.

We also believe that institutions of higher learning have a responsibility to support students as they become global citizens. Maple League schools are united in a shared vision that – as corny as it sounds – we can help our students, faculty, and staff change the world for the better. We will spend the weekend exploring ways we can enhance these opportunities at our own universities and share these experiences with members of Maple League.

The weekend promises to be stimulating, thought provoking, and delightful. In addition to plenary speakers, a student debate tournament, a Business School CASE Competition, and a series of receptions, we are hosting TEDxBishopsU, a multidisciplinary event that will feature speakers drawn from the talented pool of students, faculty, alumni, community members, and staff from the four universities. Each talk will focus on CHANGE MAKERS in higher education – either inside or outside the classroom.

What constitutes a CHANGE MAKER? How do we create support for members of our community to become effective AGENTS OF CHANGE? How can we create conditions to CHANGE THE WORLD FOR THE BETTER?
