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 1992 – Canisius appointed Joan Connell, PhD, vice president for academic affairs, in November 1992. This made her the first woman and the first non-Jesuit in Canisius history to hold the position.
