New research by Christy L. Hoffman, PhD, is garnering some significant national media attention. Dozens of print and broadcast news outlets – including People, ABC News, The New York Post and the Daily Mail – reported on Hoffman’s most recent study, which found that women sleep better with their dogs alongside them – instead of their human partners. Hoffman is associate professor of Animal Behavior, Ecology and Conservation and director of the anthrozoology program.

Town Hall Meeting Today

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

This Town Hall will be a series of roundtable discussions with President Hurley and the vice presidents. This format has been tried in the past and people responded very positively. This will give people a chance to talk about some of the key priorities in respective areas and discuss, as a smaller group, any thoughts or questions that may be relevant. The discussions will take place in 15-minute sets to give everyone an opportunity to talk with several groups. As found last time, this led to a number of informative and engaging conversations and we look forward to doing this again.

Refreshments will be served.
