Canisius Alert, the college’s emergency notification system, will test on Friday, November 9 at 3:00 p.m. The purpose of the test is to activate the Canisius Alert system and ensure the college can reach people on campus. In the event of an emergency, alerts are sent by voice, text or email message. Before the test, please be sure to review your contact information, which can be accessed through myCanisius (“Campus Services” -> “Canisius Alert/Update Emergency Contacts”).

Town Hall Meeting

All Canisius faculty and staff members are invited to attend the next Town Hall Meeting with President Hurley and the Vice Presidents on Wednesday, November 28 in the Regis Rooms from 2:30 – 3:30 p.m.

This Town Hall will be a series of roundtable discussions with the Vice Presidents and me. We have tried this format in the past and people responded very positively. This will give us a chance to talk with you about some of the key priorities in our respective areas and discuss, as a smaller group, any thoughts or questions you may have on your mind. We will do these in 15-minute sets to give you an opportunity to talk with several groups.  As we found last time, this led to a number of informative and engaging conversations, and we look forward to doing this again. I hope you can attend.

Refreshments will be served.
