Ron Joyce was honoured to accept the Doctor of Civil Law, honoris causa, from Bishop’s University, in May 2018. Not having had the benefit of a higher education himself, Ron Joyce devotes much of his philanthropic work to supporting students gain access to post-secondary education.

Bishop’s University is highly-regarded and widely recognized for its longstanding tradition of liberal arts education, and thriving research. Small class size, strong community values, personalized attention, and encouragement for students to challenge their own boundaries, have all contributed to the success of its many great leaders, and alumni worldwide.
