Jessica Caputo | VP ACADEMIC
Never judge the person you were, always remembering to evaluate the person you are today and most importantly, the person you are striving to be tomorrow.
Hey everyone! For those who don’t yet know me, I’m Jess, the new Vice President Academic Affairs of the SRC. You may know me as #30 the women’s hockey goaltender, or as the old Operations Manager who played the best music ever at Doolittle’s!
You may be asking how I went from being a hockey player to an executive role in the SRC, well I realized early on that I was tired of waiting for change, so I decided to be the change I wanted to see. As we watch our world change and adapt, one thing still remains the same. The education system; I truly believe that we are the generation that can inspire the most change for our future fellows. I stand strong when I say now is the time, to be inspired and inspire others with our ever changing cultures and believes. I firmly believe that it is time to shake up the education system. And build a better bridge when connecting how we learn to how we demonstrate our learning. To allow us to make the transition from being a student to running an empire, and simply being out into the real world.
My favorite color is blue and I have the cutest puppy on campus!
My door is always open and we are always eager to hear from all of you Gaiters! So please do not hesitate to come by the SRC hallway and let’s chat!
Thanks so much for all your confidence, together I truly believe that we can make a positive change that will last a lifetime.
THÄNia DubÉ-Lemire | Academic Affairs Manager
Hi fellow Gaiters! My name is Thaïna Dubé-Lemire and I am a third year International Studies major and Religion minor student! I am the Academic Affairs Manager, which means I’ll be organising the academic events on campus and managing the Peer Academic Mentor program. My goal is to make your journey through university easier, and to answer any questions or quell any worries that you should have, with the help of the Peer Academic Mentor team.
As someone that spends a lot of time in the library, I am quite excited about our new installations, and am pleased that we now have an office easily accessible to answer all your academic questions. This will also give me an additional excuse to stay in the library for extended periods of time! Our job as Peer Academic Mentors is to help you navigate the many requirements of the different programs offered at Bishop’s, and do our best so that you can graduate on time.
As for events, I want to strengthen the academic community that is present in the school, and allow it to develop further. Feel free to share your ideas to improve the events on campus, and suggest new ones!
I can’t wait to meet you all!
