Canisius in the News II

Kevin Hardwick, PhD, associate professor of political science, was interviewed by WBEN 930 AM on Sunday, April 23 about the mayoral election. County Legislator Betty Jean Grant says she will declare her candidacy for mayor of the city of Buffalo this coming week.

Hardwick says that the announcement wasn’t something he saw coming. “I thought she would be running for re-election, it’s a pretty safe seat.  In a three-way primary for Buffalo, you would have to rate her as a longshot – but anything can happen.”

Spotlight on Student-Faculty Collaboration

m4s-spotlightStudents and faculty from Canisius joined the March for Science in Buffalo on Saturday, April 22 to advocate for the importance of science and scientific research. Animal Behavior, Ecology and Conservation (ABEC), Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Sociology, Anthropology and Criminal Justice were among the Canisius departments represented at the march, which took place between Soldiers’ Circle and Delaware Park.

In honor of Earth Day, many of the signs carried focused on respecting and protecting the Earth and its natural resources. The students and faculty spoke of many reasons they were participating in the march including the importance of supporting scientific research and science teaching, the need for evidence-based decision making with science providing the evidence, the importance of environmental policies, the need to address climate change and the value of natural resources both economically and aesthetically.
