Get Ready for Giving Day

In preparation for Giving Day on April 25, the Canisius Fund team is forwarding the links for all the program pages as well as the ‘next steps’ memo to program directors.

If, for some reason, you missed the email with your program’s Giving Day page link, please contact Kimberly Walkow, annual leadership society giving coordinator, at or at Ext. 2712.

Once you receive the ‘next steps’ memo, be sure to review the timeline that was included. And don’t hesitate to contact the Canisius Fund with any questions. Your assistance is what will help make Giving Day a success for your program – and Canisius.

Peter Canisius, the Humanities and Jesuit Education

Rev. Brian Dunkle, SJ, returns to Canisius for lecture on theological scholarship

Rev. Brian P. Dunkle, SJ, will return to Canisius today, Monday, March 5, 2018, to celebrate the upcoming establishment of the Institute for Classical and Medieval Studies at Canisius. Father Dunkle will provide a brief lecture, entitled “Peter Canisius, the Humanities and Jesuit Education,” at 7:00 p.m. in the Grupp Fireside Lounge. The event is free and open to the public.

Father Dunkle may be familiar to many on campus, as he spent several years as a resident of Loyola Hall and a member of the Classics Department. He is currently an assistant professor of historical theology in the School of Theology and Ministry at Boston College. Father Dunkle also recently published the well-received book Enchantment and Creed in the Hymns of Ambrose of Milan (Oxford UP 2017).

We are delighted he has agreed to spend a few days with us at Canisius to share his thoughts on Jesuit education and theological scholarship.
