WNYPF at Canisius develops and encourages students to stay in Western New York and ultimately make an economic impact via job creation. Canisius is one of two participants in the program and the Prentice Family Foundation’s gift is the largest in the college’s annual fund.

The WNY Prosperity Fellowship is unique in that it combines scholarships and pays for unfunded internships as well as network and skill-building opportunities throughout the year. These opportunities are designed to enhance fellow connections to the business world allowing students to find mentors in the business community. Creating these lasting connections will encourage students to stay in WNY upon graduation.

College-Wide Shredding

A campus-wide shredding event will take place for all college-related materials. A secure central shredding location will be used and managed by the Facilities Management Department. Please note this event is intended for Canisius College-related material only. No personal shredding material will be accepted.

All material to be shredded must be boxed. If you need boxes, please place a work order in the Facilities Management online work order system, which is located in the MyCanisius Portal, under My Applications, Facilities Work Order.

Once all of your department shredding is boxed, place a new work order to have these boxes picked up and moved to the central shredding location. Please be patient: The Facilities Management Department will complete work orders according to staff availability.

Please do not call the Facilities Management Department for boxes or pick-up as you will only be referred to the work order system to place your requests.

The cut-off date for placing work orders to pick up shredding is Friday, May 26, 2017 at 3:00 pm.

Digital Humanities Summer Workshop Series

All Canisius faculty and staff are invited to participate in the 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!
