Alumni Association

If you graduated from Bishop’s, you know that Purple Pride doesn’t disappear after convocation! Once you experience Purple it becomes a part of you, and neither time nor distance can change that. The Bishop’s University Alumni Association exists to help you stay connected to, and engaged with, your alma mater and fellow Gaiters no matter how many kilometers or years separate you from Bishop’s.

Your journey in purple

The Bishop’s University Alumni Association (BUAA) represents more than 19,000 graduates. Your Alumni Association exists to foster a closely knit Bishop’s community, and to contribute to the ongoing success of our University. Volunteers constitute the lifeblood of the BUAA; they help us fulfil our goal of claiming the most engaged alumni of any academic institution in Canada.

Volunteers in our chapters from coast to coast (and beyond) organize events to help us achieve our objectives. With their assistance, we aim to hold a social, cultural and family event in each chapter – these in addition to business networking and mentoring events that have been well received by alumni in several cities.

Bishop’s is a special place that fosters a sense of service. The BUAA executive believes in carrying this torch of opening doors and works to encourage alumni from all generations to maintain a close connection to one another and to our school. Thanks to all the volunteers who’ve strengthened the bond over the years.
