ArtsCanisius is pleased to promote the work of regional artists on our campus. The Peter A. and Mary Lou Vogt Gallery in the Andrew L. Bouwhuis Library has been home to “Empty Nest,” a collection of recent paintings by Studio Art Adjunct Professor Jacqueline Welch this spring.
If you aren’t able to visit the exhibit, Jacqueline Welch, assistant professor, recorded an artist talk to discuss the themes, animals and people that have inspired her work.
Please visit canisius.edu/artscanisiusevents to enjoy her talk as well as other activities hosted by ArtsCanisius during the 2020-21 season.

Join the Institute for Classical and Medieval Studies (ICMS) on Tuesday, May 4 for the final event of the 2020-21 semester. Between 11:50 – 12:50 p.m., Thomas Banchich, PhD, professor emeritus of classics, will discuss the Legacies of Hellenistic Paideia.
Paideia is the ancient Greek curriculum for educating the ideal citizen. The training involved combining mental education, such as rhetoric, grammar, philosophy, mathematics and geography, with an education in the arts and physical exercise to produce an enlightened and complete individual.
Bring your lunch and join the discussion! This Brown Bag seminar will be held via Zoom and is free and open to the public.

Qualtrics has reorganized it’s Survey Editor feature, as well as some other screens. The new New Survey Builder is organized differently, although it has all the features of the old Survey Editor. Qualtrics believes these changes “make the survey building experience easier to navigate and more intuitive, especially for our first time users.”
Until the end of May, you have the option to opt out of the new Survey Builder.
Also new (as we’ve covered before):
- Triggers replaced by new actions tool set: Users are no longer able to create triggers within surveys. Old triggers will still be operable and editable. Qualtrics now directs users to their new Actions toolset, which has more features. Find that here. The Center for Online Learning and Innovation (COLI) has done a little experimentation with the new Actions tool set, and suspect there’s a lot of new things that can be done with it in survey projects.
- A New Reporting Toolset: Qualtrics has replaced its on-board reporting toolset. Read more about the Reports Tool change here.
- Catalog replaces the Create New UI for projects and actions, and is activated when users attempt to “Create new project” or “Create new action” from the projects or actions lists, respectively.
