Tragedy in Quebec City

Dear Colleagues,

The members of the Bishop’s University/Champlain College community are deeply saddened by the events which took place at the Centre Culturel Islamique de Québec on Sunday evening.

We stand in solidarity with our Muslim brothers and sisters and extend our deep sympathy to those who have lost loved ones.

We also want to remind any students who are struggling because of the events that the Student Services Personnel at both of our institutions are available to meet with you and provide support.

This evening there will be a vigil at the l’Association culturelle islamique de l’Estrie, 1200 Massé, Sherbrooke and the public is welcome to attend.

There will also be an opportunity to gather here on the campus on Tuesday evening at 7 p.m. in The Cleghorn Room on the second floor of the McGreer Building.

Our campus remains committed to fostering diversity and respect of all people.

Launch of Centraide Campaign

We are very excited to invite you to the launch of this year’s campaign for Centraide! As you probably know, Centraide raises money to support local organizations that help break the cycle of poverty and social exclusion.

Here are the event details:

Wednesday, October 5 at 10 a.m.
Cleghorn Room
Cookies and coffee will be served!

We will be joined by Ms. Nadia Choubane, campaign director for the public sector at Centraide, and Mr. Yves Jodoin, chairman of the board of directors at Centraide and former Secretary General at Bishop’s. We will also hear two testimonials from individuals who will explain what Centraide means to them and how past campaigns have impacted the Lennoxville organizations that have helped them.

We hope to raise $12,000 over the course of our three-week campaign. Our team of canvassers will be visiting you to explain how you can donate to the campaign and answer any questions you may have.

Please join us and Principal Goldbloom in this fantastic cause that will improve the quality of life of disadvantaged people right here in Lennoxville!
