Cathy McLean, 2015 Alumna of the year

In revitalizing the Alumni Recognition program, it was deemed important to make a direct link between the recognition program and the University’s mission. Bishop’s University mission statement appears in italics below with key values highlighted in bold.

In 1843 the founders of Bishop’s University declared their intention “to offer to the country at large the blessing of a sound and liberal education.” Today our goal remains the education of individuals, primarily at the undergraduate level, to develop their talents and realize their leadership potential. Intellectual achievement is crucial to our mission and thus the University promotes academic excellence through an emphasis on teaching enriched by scholarship and research. The Bishop’s experience begins with close interaction between professor and student but extends beyond the classroom to provide the basis for critical thinking and effective communication, while also fostering community spirit and lasting friendships. Located in the bilingual setting of the Eastern Townships, Bishop’s offers students from Quebec, Canada, and the International community the opportunity to exercise the rights and responsibilities of good citizenship and to engage in the tolerant and informed dialogue that sustains democracy.

The Alumni Association Executive feels that the values highlighted in the mission statement and the stated expectations of a Bishop’s graduate should form the basis for recognition of the University’s alumni. Values of intellectual achievement, leadership, talent, excellence within a chosen field of endeavour are all worthy of recognition. In addition to the below mentioned awards, the University and Alumni Association will continue the Top Ten After Ten program to give special recognition of the accomplishments of more recent graduates and will continue to support the University Department of Athletics in selecting recipients for the Athletics Award of Distinction Award.
