Do you care about our earth? Sustainability? Social justice? The ways in which these intersect with our lives, our community, and/or our spirituality? We welcome you to join in the Canisius Laudato Si’ Initiative!
There are two ways in which you can engage as we prepare to welcome spring back to Buffalo – join an action group to help launch our seven-year journey towards focal goals & engage in a reading group about the encyclical that started this international effort. Click here to indicate your interest today! Contact Jenn Lodi-Smith, assistant vice president for academic affairs, at email@example.com with any questions.
Join in community to discern where we are and where we can go in each of the seven goals of the Laudato Si’ Action Platform – the Vatican-led seven-year journey working in collaboration with partners and individuals around the world to empower the universal Church to achieve sustainability in the holistic spirit of integral ecology. Three action groups are working on the following goals:
Response to the cry of the earth & Ecological education
Response to the cry of the poor, Ecological economics, & Community resilience and empowerment
Adoption of sustainable lifestyles & Ecological spirituality
Read and discuss Pope Francis’ 2015 ecological encyclical, “Laudato Si’: On Care for our Common Home.” that inspired this global initiative. Copies of the encyclical are available in Bagen 103 and at this link. Meetings will be held in the Loyola Hall Great Room from 3:30 – 4:30 P.M. on the following dates:
Wednesday, March 16 – Chapters 1 and 3, on the situation;
Tuesday, April 12 – Chapters 2 and 4, Gospel and Philosophical Principles; and
Monday, May 9 – Chapters 5 and 6, Practical Consequences.

Please note that if you allow automatic grading of your exam, D2L will not automatically grade written responses. Those need to be graded manually. Inform your students that the grade they have immediately after completing the exam is not reflective of their overall grade. If you want to see all of the tutorials on the D2L Quiz tool that COLI has compiled, click here.
Canisius College maintains five years of course content in D2L. On or after March 15, 2022, ITS will perform a routine purge of course content from spring, summer and fall 2016 courses. This will delete all content uploaded or created by professors and students in 2016 courses as well as the course spaces and semester headings for 2016.
Since there is no possibility of recovery, please be certain you have exported and saved any of your 2016 course content that you wish to save by March 15, 2022.
