Website Update & Training

The Web Services Department would like to thank everyone for their patience during the transition to the new website.  As we continue to update and add pages, we ask for your assistance.

• Are there broken links? Misspellings?  Missing pages?  If so, please email corrections or omissions to Because of the scope of this project, it is important for web services to have a central location for all inquiries. When an item is received through the webmaster email, it is cataloged, prioritized and scheduled accordingly. If inquiries, changes, omissions, etc. can be coordinated within each department and sent collectively, the revisions could be made at once across all of the department’s pages.

• Internal communications will be moved to MyCanisius.  Many pages, such as student/faculty forms and instructions, that were on the former Canisius website will now be housed in MyCanisius. Web services recommends coordinating with ITS regarding this move.

• Training on the new CMS tool will begin on October 9th. Training is one session, one hour long. The sign-up form can be found here.

• There are major areas that we are currently working on, including faculty bio pages. We are developing a structure that could be used across campus, and will be implementing this very soon.

Again, please send all inquiries regarding corrections or edits to the website to

Reminder: Still Time to Give to the United Way Campaign

The United Way Executive Committee would like to thank the Canisius community for contributions to the United Way Campaign that currently total $16,076.00. We also would like to remind those that intend to give, but haven’t as yet, that the campaign will end on Wednesday, October 24. The goal is $30,000 and with everyone’s help, the goal will be reached. No gift is too small for this worthy cause.
If you have misplaced your pledge form, please call Student Affairs 888-2130 and we will be happy to send one out to you.
