Campus Candid

Canisius students, faculty, alumni, and friends welcomed Rev. Brian Dunkle, SJ, to campus Monday night. Father Dunkle currently serves as assistant professor of historical theology at Boston College’s School of Theology and Ministry. The group gathered in Grupp to learn more about the history of Peter Canisius and Jesuit education, and to hear Father Dunkle’s thoughts on how the humanities might continue to play a critical role in undergraduate education at Canisius. Father Dunkle was invited to speak to celebrate the launch of Canisius’ new Institute for Classical and Medieval Studies.IMG_20180305_191600.jpg
