The Bishop's University Students’ Representative Council
is a non-profit student run organization to which all full-time students at Bishop's automatically belong.
"The SRC is responsible for a number of services offered to students and provides a variety of both academic and non-academic clubs
through which students may become directly involved in Bishop’s life. It is also responsible for several publications, including The Quad yearbook, The Mitre and the Handbook
. In addition to this, the SRC is responsible for organizing events on campus, ranging from Orientation Week to the election of the valedictorian."
One of the oldest student organizations
in Canada, the Students' Executive Council of Bishop's University was founded in 1893. <br />It was renamed the Students' Representative Council following a referendum in the spring of 1979 which also re-organised the various vice-President positions, creating the VP Media Affairs to be responsible for Radio Bishop's (later CJMQ), the Campus Newspaper, the Mitre, the Quad (yearbook) and the Student Handbook. This constitutional change also removed all club representation from the Council, the clubs being represented by the VP positions. The constitution was subsequently revised in 1983, further structuring it. Following constitutional changes in 2006, the VP portfolios were again restructured, with the Vice-President of Social Affairs taking responsibility for clubs and societies.
