Canisius Proud

During his convocation speech earlier this week, President Hurley announced the Canisius Proud initiative to celebrate the extraordinary education we provide to our students. Canisius Proud rolls out over the coming weeks and features the many accomplishments of our faculty and alumni, and highlights our rankings and distinctions.

These points of pride will take the form of outdoor graphics and will also be displayed indoors in stanchions around the campus. Read The Dome and check social media for Canisius Proud posts.

As you begin to see these points of pride, celebrate and share them with those outside of our campus community. Take this opportunity to sing the praises of the extraordinary education Canisius has provided students for nearly 150 years.

Let’s join together to show our Canisius pride!
