In anticipation of today’s (Wednesday, January 31) launch of Canisius Connect, the Office of Alumni Engagement would like faculty and staff to know more about the program in case alumni have questions.

Canisius Connect is an online platform that allows alumni to help mentor and network with current students, as well as other alumni – virtually and on their own time. We are launching this program in direct response to the consistent question we receive from our alumni: “How can I help?” Now, alumni have the flexibility to help their fellow Griffs when it’s convenient for them.

An email invitation will be sent today to all alumni with an email address on file. The email will come from CampusTap and contain a link to click through to get to the website. From there, alumni can create a password and login and enter their professional information. They will be prompted to take a brief personality quiz to help students and other alumni users determine personality fit when reaching out for advice. Please note that Google Chrome is the recommended browser to support Canisius Connect.

This platform will be as good as the amount of active users we secure. We need your help with this endeavor. The faculty/staff launch takes place just two weeks later on February 14. You will receive an email invitation to Canisius Connect on that day. We ask that you follow the instructions in it and take the time to create your profile as faculty/staff are most often important influencers in a Griff’s professional journey.

If alumni have questions about the program or did not receive the email invitation, please let us know.  We will make sure that we have the correct email address on file for them and resend the information.

For more information, please check out website here.  Thank you in advance for your assistance!
