As a community organizer and volunteer, Ann Bishop is an embodiment of civic-mindedness. Some of the many organizations she has lent her time and expertise to include the Regent Park Community Association, Regina Humane Society, and Habitat for Humanity.
Since 2008 she has been instrumental in organizing the University of Regina’s Seniors’ University Group’s Big Book Sale fundraiser, chairing the organizing committee from 2012 to 2020. Proceeds from the Big Book Sale allow the Seniors’ University Group to offer reduced fees for courses, and bursaries for courses at the U of R’s Lifelong Learning Centre.
Ann also contributed greatly to the campus community in her various roles on staff at the University of Regina from 1975 to 2018, volunteering for boards and committees throughout her career. It was during her time as an employee at the U of R that
Ann completed a Certificate of Administration in 1989 and a Bachelor of Arts in 1996. Through her work with U of R research units over the years, she has served as a strong advocate for social justice, addressing inequities in health care, and intimate partner violence in our community.
