A Message from the Vice-Principal Academic
Bishop’s is a liberal arts, mainly undergraduate postsecondary institution. But it is also a place where research and creative activity at all levels are encouraged and fostered. Over 50% of our research personnel are undergraduate students, who have the opportunity to gain hands-on research experience, be it in labs, in archives, or in the field. Our professors are also researchers and artistic scholars who make significant contributions to their field of expertise and who engage in knowledge mobilization activities so that the advancements made in research and creative endeavours may be communicated directly to the users for whom the research findings are intended. We invite you to consult the Research Spotlights section of this web page to learn more about some of our research success stories, undergraduate and graduate student researchers and community outreach activities.
