Canisius College is committed to providing professional development opportunities that will enhance personal and professional growth, improve engagement and retention of staff. As part of this commitment and in response to feedback from staff through our performance appraisal process, we are introducing a Mentor Program to pair individuals (mentor) who have expertise, knowledge and skill with staff (mentee) who are interested in gaining knowledge and skills in order to further develop professional expertise.

We have several leaders across the Canisius College campus who have agreed to participate as mentors in the program.  A mentor is a combination of many different people – part cheerleader, part coach, part teacher, part student, part guide, and part listener. A mentor guides, inspires, encourages, counsels, advises, questions and answers.


We are currently seeking mentees who are interested in being assigned a mentor in 2020. The schedule and time commitment will be flexible and scheduled based on your assigned mentor and your meeting preferences.

Please contact Linda Walleshauser, associate vice president for Human Resources & Compliance at Ext. 2244 with any questions.
