Campus Candid


The inaugural Canisius Conversations with President John J. Hurley was held on January 20 at Citi.  Nearly 100 alumni enjoyed an intimate discussion with President Hurley about the past, present and future of the college.  Our academic deans were also in attendance and participated in a tour of Citi and its facilities, hearing first-hand the importance of a diverse work force and the benefits of a strong relationship with the college.

The series was created in an effort to engage with our fellow Griffs at companies throughout WNY where we have large portions of alumni employed.
