Hydro-Québec academic excellence scholarships

Bishop’s University is pleased to announce the recipients of the Hydro-Québec academic excellence scholarships, they are:

  • Patricia Aubin –  Biology Health Sciences
  • Isabelle Audet – Biology Health Sciences
  • Christof Belisle – Computer Science
  • Sarah Caimano – Psychology Neurosciences
  • Megan Cipro – Biology Health Sciences
  • Olivia Page – Biology Health Sciences
  • Lydia Toussaint – Biology and Education

“We are deeply committed to ensuring that all students who excel academically are rewarded for their efforts. We are very grateful to Hydro-Québec for this important investment in our students,” said Dr. Miles Turnbull, Vice-Principal Academic at Bishop’s University.

The Hydro-Québec academic excellence scholarships support one of the main goals of Bishop’s University’s Leading the Way Campaign – which concluded in April 2018 and raised $44.5 million on a goal of $30 million – which was to raise funds for scholarships and bursaries. This gift will support Bishop’s in attracting the most promising students to its campus.

Hydro-Québec’s donation of $160,000, delivered in $32,000 increments over five years, allows deserving Bishop’s students to benefit from an annual scholarship of $4,000 to $6,000.

Ethan Pohl awarded 3M National Student Fellowship

Bishop’s University is pleased to announce that Ethan Pohl, a fourth year undergraduate student majoring in Sociology, has been awarded the prestigious 3M National Student Fellowship.

The 3M National Student Fellowship honours up to ten full-time students at Canadian post-secondary institutions who have demonstrated outstanding leadership in their lives, at their post-secondary institution. These students embrace a vision of education that enhances their academic experience and beyond.

During his time at Bishop’s, Ethan has been the Station Manager at BU Toast Radio and helped design and facilitate ENG454 Podcasting, one of the experiential learning opportunities offered through the English Department. As part of this project he also co-published a peer-reviewed article on student-faculty partnerships and has since presented at international conferences. He has been a valuable contributor to the Maple League Student Advisory Council, and is a wonderful example of a student who has benefitted from a model of education that values collaboration as a fundamental process in building capacities for new ways of thinking, doing, and learning through an individualized approach to undergraduate education. As Dr. Jessica Riddell, his 3M nominator, writes, “Ethan has been a leader on campus throughout his time at Bishop’s, and continues to seek out colleagues and collaborators to broaden his knowledge – but also to help his peers find their voices. Ethan is the ultimate amplifier of student voices, which makes him an ideal 3M fellow. Ethan has always been very open about his own struggles and messy journeys: because he knows how hard it is to find your voice, he has committed himself to helping others find theirs.”

Awardees attend the annual conference of the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLHE) in June, where they will participate in a 3M National Student Fellowship Program retreat and lead the closing plenary. This year STLHE2019 is in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

“At Bishop’s, we are small and yet mighty in our aspirations to be the institution of choice for outstanding young people seeking academic excellence and a comprehensive undergraduate experience,” Dr. Riddell explains. “We believe that student learning and strong student-faculty partnerships are at the heart of higher education, and we are very proud of Ethan as a model of educational leadership, academic rigor, research, and creative activity.”

Planned power outage Feb. 27 – Academic activities maintained

Bishop’s has been notified by Hydro-Québec of a planned power outage related to highway 410 construction work on Wednesday, February 27, 2019, between noon and 4 p.m. This planned power outage unfortunately cannot be rescheduled. Should unforeseen circumstances prevent Hydro-Québec from performing the required work on February 27, the planned postponement date is the next day, February 28, 2019.

Academic activities will be maintained as most areas on campus are naturally lit. Emergency lighting will be available, but some facilities – including, but not limited to, washrooms and elevators – may pose challenges. Faculty can use discretion to proceed with regularly-scheduled classes and will be expected to notify students of modifications to regularly-scheduled classes.

Hydro-Québec is confident power will be restored before the end of daylight; however, the situation will be monitored and reassessed as needed, should the outage be expected to persist beyond daylight. Please monitor further information through SAFEGaiter, the University’s twitter and facebook accounts as well as the website to be informed of further developments.

Coming in July 2019…YOUR Campus Bookstore!

Dear Members of the Bishop’s community,

Bishop’s University and the SRC are pleased to share exciting news with you about upcoming changes to the Bishop’s University Bookstore.

Beginning in July 2019, the campus bookstore is changing its model of operation and will become a co-op: owned by you, for you!

A co-op is a not-for-profit organization, for which users may purchase a share and become a member to benefit from lower prices than non-members. The goals of the co-op will be to offer its members the lowest possible prices while remaining financially sustainable, and to provide maximum employment and experiential learning opportunities to Bishop’s students.

Additional information will follow in the coming months. In the meantime, for more information please feel free to contact Kylie Côté, Financial Planning Analyst, at or at 819-822-9600 ext. 2543.

Acadia President Dr. Peter Ricketts Named Chair of the Maple League of Universities

Dr. Peter RickettsAcadia University’s President and Vice-Chancellor, Dr. Peter Ricketts, has been elected Chair of the Maple League of Universities, succeeding Michael Goldbloom, Principal and Vice-Chancellor of Bishop’s University. The Maple League is a consortium of universities — which includes Acadia, Bishop’s, Mount Allison, and Saint Francis Xavier Universities — that fosters reciprocal relationships and engages across institutional boundaries to enhance the student experience while leading the way on what it means to be educated in the 21st century.

“I am very pleased to follow Michael in the role of Chair of the Maple League and want to thank him for his outstanding leadership while we’ve built momentum inside and outside our institutions,” says Ricketts. “Michael was instrumental to the formation of the Maple League and continues to champion our new initiatives and activities. Our four institutions are so similar in their approach to teaching, learning, and student experience that we have been able to develop concepts such as a multi-campus course delivery that has been an exciting and popular offering to students. We expect these sorts of academic innovations to continue and for more students to choose to study at one of our four institutions as a result.”

The Maple League of Universities (formerly the U4 group) was officially launched in November of 2016. All four universities take great pride in fostering close-knit communities with small class sizes and a residential focus (90% of students live within 1km of campus). Maple League institutions are primarily undergraduate institutions and 70 to 80% of courses are taught by full-time faculty. The four universities are economic and cultural drivers for their respective regional communities, each with their own distinct eco-systems and socio-linguistic communities. History and tradition abound – institutions were founded between 1838 and 1853 – and yet offer degrees that are increasingly relevant to modern society: our 21st century liberal education focuses on critical thinking, communication, collaboration, creativity, innovation, and real-world experiences. Students benefit from high levels of engagement with faculty and are encouraged to become involved in hands on research – an experience that is usually only offered to graduate students at most large Canadian universities.

“Earning an undergraduate degree is a significant investment for students and their families and in the Maple League we are firmly convinced of the value of an education that includes the entire range of student interests,” says Ricketts. “Small scale universities offer young people an opportunity to engage directly with faculty and their classroom peers. It is nearly impossible to remain anonymous on a campus where almost the entire student body lives on or within several blocks of campus so learning is an immersive experience. On every one of the Maple League campuses there are virtually limitless opportunities for volunteering in the community, giving students early exposure to what it means to be a member of a community and forming habits and building networks that will last a lifetime. University should be more than simply earning a degree: it should be about finding out what kind of person you can be and how far your interests and expertise can take you in life.”

Dr. Jessica Riddell, Executive Director of the Maple League (and the Stephen A. Jarislowsky Chair of Undergraduate Teaching Excellence at Bishop’s University), is looking forward to working with President Ricketts in his new role: “The Maple League is a unique partnership in the landscape of higher education in Canada, and requires visionary leadership, which we have in abundance with President. Ricketts and the other three presidents, Principal Goldbloom, President MacDonald, and President Boudreau. This collaboration challenges us to ask two fundamental questions: What can we do together that we cannot do on our own? And how does working together enhance what we do do on our own? These questions are progressive and unconventional since universities are usually hard-wired to compete. The Maple League – under the leadership of President Ricketts – has tremendous potential to re-wire mindsets around higher education, challenges us to be creative and bold in designing exceptional student experiences, and distinguishes us as leaders in defining what a 21st century education looks like.”

Bishop’s University donors contribute $62,926.50 during Giving Tuesday

BU Giving Tuesday

For its first-ever Giving Tuesday campaign, Bishop’s University raised $62,926.50, illustrating the solidarity and dedication of our community towards access to higher education. These donations will be used to give out bursaries to students who are in financial need.

Following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the Giving Tuesday movement encourages individuals and organizations to join together and find innovative ways to give back to the charities and non-profits they support.

We are sincerely grateful to our donors, who believe in the continuous success of our students. We are also grateful to those who have shared their stories and enthusiasm for this fundraising effort.

Here is a small portion of the testimonials we have witnessed on social media:

A letter from the Minister to all Education and Higher Education personnel in Quebec

À tout le personnel des réseaux de l’éducation et de l’enseignement supérieur,

Investi de cette responsabilité envers notre société, je nous encourage à faire en sorte que nos contributions collectives s’inscrivent dans la réalisation de notre mission.

À tout le personnel du réseau de l’éducation: je vous félicite pour votre professionnalisme et pour la valeur de la relation que vous tissez avec les élèves au quotidien. Votre rôle est déterminant pour notre société ainsi que pour la réussite éducatives des enfants et des apprenants du Québec.
