New this year, the Celebration of Service will honor all employees who have reached five, 10, 15, 20, 25 or more years of service here at the college. The event will also honor those who have retired or will be retiring from the college this year.

Canisius is the excellent institution it is today because these colleagues gave their time and talents over the years.  This event is a way to celebrate their successes and achievements.

Van Volkenburg Featured in St. John the Baptist Alumni Newsletter

Senior Associate Campus Minister J. Joseph Van Volkenburg ’88 was profiled in his elementary school’s alumni newsletter. St. John the Baptist in Kenmore profiled him in the spring/summer 2017 issue of The Advocate. In the story, Van Volkenburg discusses his journey to becoming a campus minster and how his time in junior high school provided the foundation of faith and a desire to experience God through others.

In March, Van Volkenburg was presented with the One Buffalo Community Award for going above and beyond in his service to the community. The award was established by Pegula Sport and Entertainment and presented by the New Era Cap Company to individuals who make Western New York a better place by going out of their way to positively impact the region.
