Save the Date: Strategic Planning Campus Forum is April 6

President Hurley is pleased to invite all members of the Canisius community to participate in a campus forum on Wednesday, April 6 from 2:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. in the Montante Cultural Center to provide input on the draft of the institution-wide strategic plan. The Strategic Planning Committee has been working diligently over the past several months to develop a draft, drawing input from a variety of sources, and is eager to receive feedback from students, faculty and staff. A copy of the draft will be circulated prior to the event so that you will have time to review the document carefully. Please do your best to attend and encourage your students and staff to participate. Your input is sincerely valued and important to the Strategic Planning Committee in this process.
