Celebrate 10 Years of Online Education at Canisius College

The Center for Online Learning and Innovation (COLI) is excited to celebrate 10 years of offering online programs this fall. A small celebration to commemorate the occasion will be held on Thursday, October 13 at 3:30 p.m. in the Montante Cultural Center. The gathering will include wine, appetizers and accolades. We invite everyone who has been a part of online learning over the past 10 years to join us.

Today, Canisius College has 11 online programs and five online certificates. The college offers more than 200 courses online every semester and it has more than 100 faculty teaching online. This would not be possible without the hard work of faculty and staff from across the college.
