The Dome Goes on Holiday

With the college shutdown fast approaching, The Dome will go on a brief hiatus for the Christmas and New Year holidays.

Wednesday, December 18 will be the last issue of The Dome published in 2019. (So plan now if you need something to run before year’s end.) The Dome returns to publication on Wednesday, January 15 of the new year.

As always, please be sure to have your submissions in by 2:00 p.m. on the day prior.

United Way Campaign Comes to a Close

Thanks to the generous donations made by Canisius faculty and staff, the college’s 2019 United Way Giving Campaign raised a total of $20,000.  This substantial gift helps those in need in our community, and enables the United Way to do the work that no one non-profit can do alone.

Special congratulations go out to the final two basket raffle winners: Brian Smith, director of international students and study abroad, and Shelia Pettigrew, senior assistant director of career development.

Thank you to everyone who supported this year’s campaign!

Adjunct Faculty Information Session

The Center for Online Learning & Innovation (COLI) invites all new, returning and current adjunct professors to an Adjunct Faculty Information Session to help prepare you to teach during the spring 2020 semester. Learn about employee resources, the library, the college mission, and technology for teaching and learning. Refreshments will be served.

The session takes place on Thursday, January 2, 2020, from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. in Science Hall 1008. (This session was previously planned for Old Main 119 but has been moved.)

This is a fantastic way to get up to speed quickly on the essentials for teaching at Canisius College.  Adjunct faculty who are teaching at Canisius for the first time this spring can benefit but returning adjunct instructors are also welcome.
