Research
Be inquisitive.
Be Purple. BU.

Many people don’t realize that a primarily undergraduate, liberal education institution like Bishop’s can include a vibrant and thriving research component in its mandate. Bishop’s, however, is proof that one can. Our Research Office, under the direction of the Vice-Principal Academic, supports a wide range of scientific, scholarly, and creative research activities conducted by the faculty and students of the university.

A Message from the Vice-Principal Academic

The 2014-2015 year has been a banner year for research at Bishop’s University. There were a record number of funded researchers, new partnerships were created, previously established partnerships were reinforced with renewed collaborations, and our Research Week celebrated its tenth anniversary of showcasing faculty and student research at Bishop’s. Our researchers have once again demonstrated that small universities can provide significant contributions to the advancement of knowledge, and Bishop’s is committed to providing them with the support and resources to allow them to pursue this important work. We invite you to visit the newly revamped Research web page to learn more about this year’s Research Spotlights, about the unique opportunities Bishop’s can provide to undergraduate students who wish to acquire experience working as research assistants and the services offered by our Research Office. Since taking the helm as Vice-Principal Academic, Responsible for Research, I have felt proud to be a part of this impressive research team, whose expertise and achievements are outlined in the following pages.
