The Student Representative Council (SRC) recognizes the importance of acknowledging and rewarding students’ academic accomplishments here at Bishop’s University; the Academic Division Cup is designed to do just that. Throughout the year, a series of points will be distributed according to student accomplishments and academic participation. These include, but are not limited to, academic club involvement; divisional senator events and more. Depending on the circumstance, points may be awarded on a “percentage basis”, to ensure equality among divisions or on a “points per person” basis. Throughout the year, the points will be tallied up and displayed in the SRC hallway to illustrate the progress that each division has made. By the end of the winter semesters, the division with the most accumulated points through both the Fall and Winter semester will be awarded with a $500 grant and the prestigious honour of being the first division or school to win. The winner will be announced through social media as well as during the SRC Awards ight. The money will be given to the Dean of the winning division, and the Dean and Division Senator will proceed as is necessary to decide how the grant will be spent. The money shall be spent or allocated in time for the next academic year so that students may see how the grant has enriched their division.
