Sue Gruttadauria, administrative associate for computer science, mathematics, physics and the core curriculum
No matter what area of the college Sue Gruttadauria supports, she is able to juggle multiple responsibilities with a smile on her face.
Sue’s journey at Canisius began in 2001 in the Annual Fund Office. She later worked in Student Advisement and Adult Academic Services before landing in her current post in the Departments of Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics and the Core Curriculum in October 2015.
Involved in many campus organizations, Sue is a recipient of the I. Joan Lorch Women and Gender Studies award for her contributions to women on campus. A strong ally of the LGBT community, Sue supports UNITY, Campus Ministry’s Always Our Children retreats, and serves as a board member for the Buffalo Gay Men’s Chorus.
She is also proud that she has donated platelets every two weeks for the last 25 years.
Sue is a regular at Canisius events. “I love to take advantage of the variety of speakers on campus, some of which Canisius gets before other schools,” she says. In particular, she recalls Judy Shepard (Matt Shepard’s mother), Dan Savage, Dustin Lance Black and Laverne Cox.
Sue also enjoys spending time with her family, which includes her daughter, son and grandson.
Did you know…? Sue has a brown belt in Judo and competed in the Empire State Games. Twenty years ago she competed against Colleen Rosenteel, U.S. Women’s Olympic Judo Heavy Weight.
