Students of the conservation biology course share their ideas about things you can do here in Buffalo to help conservation efforts. The students have worked incredibly hard and want the entire Canisius community to learn how to become “greener.”

Pep Band Unveils New Name and Logo

18118490_1948984811989819_479229869746643092_nThe Canisius College Pep Band will dawn its new name and logo this coming fall semester. “Blue and Gold Brigade” was developed this past fall by a “name the band” survey sent out to the Canisius College community.

Anna Gleason ’17, a senior alto saxophonist and public relations chair for the brigade, designed the new logo that was released publicly this week.

The band appreciates all of the support the campus has shown them over the past two years. With this rebrand, they hope to further cement the band on campus for years to come.

Digital Humanities Summer Workshop Series: Digital Mapping

warfordsummerworkshopheaderAll Canisius faculty and staff are invited to participate in our free 2017 Digital Humanities Summer Workshop Series, introducing digital mapping tools for research and teaching. Digital mapping and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are powerful resources that scholars, students and professionals use in a wide variety of fields.  The series is led by Erin Warford, PhD, adjunct professor of classics, who has nine years of experience using Geographic Information Systems in academia and industry.

In these workshops attendees will learn:

  • How to build course content, assessments and student projects using StoryMaps, a web application that closely integrates geography with other forms of content (text, images and video). See examples here.
  • Fundamentals of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and digital mapping useful across a wide variety of applications, from the simple (class assignments) to the very complex (scholarly research).
  • Basics of ARCGIS, a powerful, industry-standard Geographic Information System.

You can find more information, and register for any or all of the workshops here.

These workshops are brought to you by the Digital Humanities Working Group and the Center for Online Learning & Innovation. We’d like to thank Dr. Warford for making this special opportunity possible!
