Canisius College’s Institute for the Study of Human-Animal Relations (ISHAR) has two new directors: Malini Suchak, PhD, and Joshua Russell, PhD, assistant professors of animal behavior, ecology and conservation (ABEC). Under this new leadership, ISHAR hopes to establish more connections with the wider campus community in the form of partnerships and support for a range of activities, including student research (undergraduate and graduate), guest speakers, campus events, student travel, and more. If students, faculty or staff wish to request funding for activities that are related to the study and understanding of humanity’s relationships with other animals, we invite you to fill out our Google forms applications. You can find links to the forms, along with more information about ISHAR, on our webpage here.
