The Center for Online Learning & Innovation (COLI) helps to support faculty and students at a distance. Part of this work involves advocating for unseen audiences. Over 1500 students at Canisius took up the opportunity to learn partially or fully online in the Spring 2016 semester. Though many of these students are located in New York, 37 states and 2 countries were represented in the Spring 2016 online/hybrid student population statistics.

Canisius offers 11 unique online and hybrid degrees and 5 online certificates- all at the graduate level. Not all online and hybrid courses are offered in online programs, however. In fact, there were over 60 online and hybrid courses offered at the undergraduate level in Spring of 2016.

Canisius College Spring 2016 Online Learning Statistics

  • Online and hybrid undergraduate courses: 62
    • Students enrolled in undergraduate online and hybrid courses: 687

    • Students enrolled in graduate online and hybrid courses: 888
  • Instructors teaching online and hybrid courses: 132

Besides working with Graduate Admissions and the Griff Center for Academic Engagement to assist our many online learners, COLI also offers training and support to the many program directors, full-time faculty members and adjunct faculty members teaching online and hybrid courses. 132 instructors taught online in Spring 2016, 47 were full-time faculty members.
