Alumni Relations and Philanthropy Office

You, our alumni, are our proudest achievement.

We hope your time at Bishop’s was an integral part of your personal growth, which helped shape the person you have become, and that you carry your alma mater with you always. We are here to help you stay connected with Bishop’s, your fellow alumni, and today’s students. In short, we facilitate opportunities for you to contribute to our community and strengthen the future of our institution, creating the purple wave of tomorrow.

On October 13th, 2023, the current Quebec government proposed tuition increases for Canadian non-Quebec residents coming to study at university in Quebec from the current approximately $9,000 to $17,000.

After much negotiation, public outcry, and a recognition by the government of the unique situation at Bishop’s, our institution was granted an exemption from the proposed increases.

The support we received from the local francophone community, as well as our friends and alumni, was without a doubt instrumental in obtaining this exemption. We had asked out-of-province alumni to share testimonials about the positive experiences they had at Bishop’s, in Lennoxville, and in the province, and your response was nothing short of inspiring.

You have proven that we have always been and continue to be proud of our location in this beautiful province and our ability to attract students from across the country and around the world.
