Erica Phillips  |  VP ACADEMIC

Before I made decision to pursue a BSc in Biochemistry in a place I’d never previously known existed, I grew up in the suburbs of Ottawa, Ontario. I realized in my formative years that I am very much a fan of the word “yes”, and that realization has lead me to become the professional dabbler that I am today. In my time at Bishop’s, my experience has included choir performances, newspaper contributions, leadership conferences, off-campus volunteering, event organizing, and finally, work in residence, alumni relations and student advocacy.
This year I am beyond stoked to be representing the student body in all things academic, as your VP Academic. The work done by myself and my team of five student senators rests largely on committee presence, where we speak on your behalf to topics such as campus research policies, student-faculty partnerships and academic services required by students (among many things!). We are continually seeking to understand the diverse perspectives and needs of the BU population, so please drop us a line or let us welcome you into our office.
Are you looking to increase your chances of success in your classes? Allow us to direct you to the program-specific help centres located across campus! Thinking of applying to a professional degree after your undergrad? Right this way to sign up for our mock LSAT/MCAT/GRE exams! As the academic department of the SRC, we put on various academic events, from Bishop’s Speaks to Wine & Cheese nights with professors, we offer the only comprehensive academic advising on campus with our Peer Academic Mentoring Program, and, in short, we make all of your academic dreams come true. 
 Welcome to BU!


Alyson Loach – Business Senator

My name is formally Alyson, but everyone calls me Aly! I’m currently a third year Marketing student, entering my final year at Bishop’s. I have lived in Lennoxville for 21 years now and so I’m one of the rare locals you run into from time to time. I’m really grateful to have expanded my knowledge of International Business since I have been away on exchange and it was a fabulous experience, I highly recommend anyone willing to expand their horizons. I hope to represent the Williams School of Business successfully in the upcoming year and ensure sufficient communication among the community. Cheers!


Anthony mARTIN – Social Science SENATOR

Hey Gaiters! My name is Anthony Martin and I’m from Laval, Quebec. I am a second-year student, studying International Studies and International Political Economy. As your Social Sciences Senator for the upcoming year, I will be representing your voice, needs and concerns on academic issues. To complement this role, I will also make sure that decisions being made will be transmitted to you as they concern each and every student of our amazing, tight-knit, purple community.

If you have any questions, problems or even projects you would like to discuss, I will gladly help you and make sure that your voice gets to the right resources. Simply send me an email or feel free to stop me around campus and it will be my greatest pleasure to get things done!

Raise a toast!




Hello Bishop’s, I’m Kevin-John Chaplin and I am your Education Senator for 2017-2018. My role is to improve the student experience for our Education Students, and I plan to be around to answer any questions, as well as help you realize any projects or ideas you may have. I’m a 3rd Year Secondary Education and Fine Arts Double Major, as well as a Lennoxville local, so I’m pretty savvy with the campus and community; if I cannot address your questions about the school or the Education program, I normally know who can. I’m looking forward to working with you all to make this a fun and memorable year.
