Faculty Photo Sessions

Photo shoots will be taking place for all faculty members who would like a head shot or are in need of a new head shot. Head shots are strongly encouraged, as they are used under the faculty sections on the Canisius website. There will be three photo sessions in various locations across campus for those who are available.

Photo Sessions:

Monday, January 28 from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. in the Old Main vestibule

Tuesday, January 29 from 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. in the Science Hall Atrium

Thursday, January 31 from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. in Lyons Hall 1st floor (by the main staircase)

To sign up for a day and time, click here.

More than one person can sign up for a time slot, as each head shot will not take more than a few minutes of your time!

Let’s ring in the new year with a fresh photo!

The Writing Center is Now Open

The writing center is open for the semester and will work with any student, faculty or staff member at the college at any stage of the writing process. The hours will vary depending on the day of the week but availability is accessible on the website.

The staff is still relatively small so there are fewer hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The center has enough tutoring time for more than 100 appointments a week.

If you have a student who can’t find an appointment slot, contact Graham Stowe, assistant professor of English and director of the Writing Center, at

Please pass this information along to students. The Writing Center is located in Old Main 308.

Online Faculty Development Course

This spring, the Center for Online Learning & Innovation (COLI) will be running an online faculty development course to help prepare faculty to teach online and hybrid classes.

Learn how to build engaging, rigorous online and hybrid courses that are powered by your teaching skills and enthusiasm. Discover how to sensibly incorporate interactive learning, social engagement and teaching presence in your online class space. After this mini-course, you will craft effective and engaging web-based courses that incorporate your personality and talents as a professor and Canisius College’s special blend of Jesuit identity and pedagogy.

This course will run from Monday, February 4 through Saturday, March 9. The class is entirely online and simulates a real fully-online course, so you learn to teach online while getting the online student experience.

This course is available to all Canisius College faculty. Whether you plan to teach an online course in the future, aren’t yet sure you’ll teach online or would just like to know more about online courses and coursework, this is an excellent opportunity. Please enroll by contacting and see the COLI Calendar for times and locations of other faculty development events.
