Part of the mission of the ALANA Student Center (ASC) is “to assist the college in enhancing services for ALANA student communities, and introducing the entire student population to issues involving cross-cultural patterns, participation in the life of the college and self-concept concerns.”

To help us achieve this goal, ASC wants faculty, staff and administrators to know we are here for support in a variety of ways. The center offers co-curricular opportunities to supplement the learning that is happening in the classroom. Our staff is also available to do specialized workshops for classes, teams and departments.

The center serves not only as a resource but as a safe space for all to enjoy. The lounge area is available for all members of the community. The Canisius community is encouraged to support the programs and initiatives and give feedback on various ways that ASC can support and meet the campus needs.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to Bennie D. Williams, assistant dean of students, at
