We are in need of faculty, staff and administrator volunteers to serve as timekeepers for this year’s Ignatian Scholarship Day on Wednesday, April 18 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Timekeepers introduce the session and the student scholars and keep time during the presentation.  Students have 10 – 15 minutes to present with approximately three minutes allotted for fielding questions before audience and presenters rotate out of the venue.

Concurrent sessions run from 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. (10:00 – 11:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m., 2:00 – 3:00 p.m., and 4:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.), and each session is 20 minutes in length.  Volunteers have successfully made this happen like clockwork at past events.

If you are a faculty mentor for a student presenter, it is customary that you serve as the timekeeper for that paper or presentation.  If you have a conflict, please let Connie Pileri know at your earliest convenience (Ext. 2192 or pileric@canisius.edu) so that another timekeeper can be assigned.

If you are interested and available to assist, please send your availability, preferably in 20-minute intervals, to eventmgt@canisius.edu or by calling the Office of Event Services at Ext. 2180.
