The Canisius College Border Initiative is a collaborative space where Canisius students, faculty, and staff, together with members of the Western New York Community work to understand and support the lives of immigrants and refugees around the globe.

 The Border Initiative develops programs, events, and opportunities for our community to support justice for migrants, refugees, and those who meet and cross borders.   We are guided by the Ignatian Pedagogical Paradigm, which insists that different perspectives, reflection and action intersect so that we become women and men for others.
