Canisius College is saddened to report the passing of Professor Emeritus Daniel C. Falkowski, PhD, who died October 17, 2018 following a brief illness.  He was 80.

The professor of economics and international finance joined the Richard J. Wehle School of Business in 1975 following teaching positions at New York University, Rider University, Bentley University and the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.  His scholarly work focused primarily on monetary policy in the European Union and the euro.  During his 30-year tenure at Canisius, Falkowski also taught at Attica Correctional Facility, helping inmates to earn their college degrees, and served as director of student recruitment and volunteers for the Canisius chapter of Habitat for Humanity.

Falkowski earned his undergraduate degree from Kent State University, and his master’s and doctorate degrees in economics and finance from New York University.

A celebration of his life was held Tuesday, October 23.
