Remote Work and Telecommuting Policy-Comment Period

Canisius recognizes that there can be value in allowing staff members the opportunity to work remotely as needed.  As such, the college has drafted a Remote Work and Telecommuting Policy.  The purpose of this proposed policy is to outline under what conditions a remote work arrangement may be approved for staff members.

The proposed policy would be added to Volume III of the Canisius College Policy Manual and can be accessed here.

The campus community has 60 days to comment on the proposed policy. The comments will be shared with the college’s senior leadership team at the end of the comment period. If approved, the policy will become effective mid-November.

Please contact Linda Walleshauser, associate vice president for human resources & compliance, at with any questions.

Cultural Times Bulletin

The Cultural Times Bulletin is a newsletter that was started by Sababu Norris, who recently retired from his role as director of the ALANA Student Center after 31 years of service.

During Norris’ transition to retirement, the Cultural Times Bulletin was discontinued. In an effort to honor the legacy of Norris and to keep the campus and local community aware of what is happening in the ALANA Student Center and on campus, the ALANA Student Center is pleased to present the new Cultural Times Bulletin. With a new look and feel, the Cultural Times Bulletin will provide you with important updates and recaps of various events and initiatives from the college regarding cultural engagement and support.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the ALANA Student Center at

Finding your Zoom Recordings

Recording meetings on Zoom can be very beneficial. If a student is unable to make it to a class or a hybrid course is taught, the lecture only needs to be recorded once and posted to D2L.

Zoom makes it easy to record and online lecture for online classes without the issues and hassle that other screen-recording software comes with. It is also beneficial if a transcript for the recording is needed (which is only available when saving to the Zoom cloud).

Sometimes it is difficult to know where Zoom is recording and saving video files. Watch the following YouTube video to see where Zoom records these videos and how to access them, including when to use the different recording options and other tips.
