It’s Flashback Friday! Each Friday we will include historical facts about the college in The Dome, on Facebook and Twitter. Flashback Fridays are another part of our yearlong Sesquicentennial celebration, which culminates in 2020 when Canisius turns 150 years old.

Flashback to October 2009 – Appointed following a unanimous vote by the Board of Trustees on October 19, 2009, John J. Hurley became the 24th president of Canisius College and the first lay leader in the Jesuit institution’s 140-year history.
