All Branding Firm Presentations Now On iTunesU

Video and audio-only files of the presentations by Ologie, Mindpower and 160over90 are now available for download for those who missed the presentations from the college’s iTunesU site here.

Also, feedback forms should be dropped off to Robert Hill by November 9. An online feedback form is available here.

One of these agencies will be selected to partner with Canisius to aid in the development of a brand marketing plan designed to enhance and extend the visibility and reputation of the college. This work, which is part of the college’s strategic plan, is intended to help Canisius better define and manage our reputation, further differentiate the college from various competitors, and to support, among other priorities, our enrollment and fundraising efforts. The results of this work will begin to be incorporated into our marketing and communications next summer.

Annual Public Safety Donation Drive Begins

The Canisius College Department of Public Safety will hold their 11th Annual Holiday Needy Drive to assist many local families in having a better holiday season.

Traditionally law enforcement officers and police staff have come to the aid of needy people during the holiday season.  With this proud tradition in mind, Public Safety will collect warm clothes, blankets and toys for those less fortunate in the City of Buffalo.  The Holiday Needy Drive has helped many families enjoy Christmas, especially for those who may not be able to buy their children a toy.  The donations will be delivered to the Ladies Of Charity Christmas Program.  Cash is also welcome.

Items will be accepted in the Public Safety Briefing Room.  To volunteer to assist with the delivery, contact Gary Everett at Ext. 3197.  On the delivery date, Public Safety Chaplain Rev. Paul J. Dugan, S.J. will bless the donation.  After the delivery, lunch will be served for all in the briefing room.
