Student Services understands Bishop’s University to be a learning community in which the student is the centre of our educational mission.
We commit ourselves to work together with students and with all partners, both teaching and non-teaching, to enhance the quality of student life so that each student may experience the fullest personal growth, enjoy a learning environment that is just, mutually respectful and strives for academic excellence.
We support an atmosphere where both freedom of expression and civility are powerfully affirmed.
Further, we endorse a disciplined community where individuals accept their reciprocal obligations for the common good; where well-defined procedures of governance guide behaviour; where service to students is encouraged; and where a caring community supports the well-being of each individual.
Finally, we support the University as a community in which the heritage of Bishop’s is remembered, the contribution of students is honoured; where the rituals affirming tradition are acknowledged and the procedures governing change are widely shared.
