The Buffalo Bills kick off the NFL season against the LA Rams on Thursday, September 8 so let’s show some team spirit.
The campus community is invited to wear their favorite Bills gear on game day. While you’re at it, why not snap a few photos of you and your colleagues sporting some Bills pride. Send the pictures to Audrey Browka (email@example.com) and they’ll be published in Friday’s edition of The Dome.
President Steve Stoute and Vice President for Student Affairs Harold Fields, EdD, hosted a reception for the Hamlin Park Community and Taxpayers Association last week.
Stephanie Geter, the president of the association, welcomed the new administrators to the neighborhood and Mayor Byron Brown spoke about the long and productive partnership between the city of Buffalo and Canisius College. Many city officials, including Masten District Council Member Ulysees Wingo, attended the event, as did the principal of Hamlin Park School, Patrick Cook, and Buffalo Board of Education Member Sharon Belton Cottman.
President Stoute fielded questions from guests and assured them that our campus would be an open and welcoming place for our neighbors.

Several Canisius College faculty have begun a resource called Mission-in-Curriculum, which offers Canisius instructors opportunities to incorporate the College’s Jesuit mission and identity into their courses.
This website is a growing collection of case-studies, describing how different professors have tied their disciplinary content and activities to Catholic social teaching, the Catholic intellectual tradition, and various aspects of Jesuit pedagogy and spirituality. This is not an evangelical effort; rather, it grounds what we teach, across our disciplines, in social, cultural, and intellectual structures that are characteristic of Jesuit Higher Education. It is what we do that most other colleges and universities do not do.
Periodically, check back to this resource and see the new case studies that have been added. Also, visit the separate sections on Jesuit Higher Education, Catholic Social Teaching, and the Catholic Intellectual Tradition to see and hear concise descriptions of what these offer. We envision this as a living, growing resource, so we anticipate making improvements and additions based on faculty needs. Feedback is most welcome.
Likely, you are already doing something in your classes that connect with these concepts, and may need to only identify them to students (which can help them grasp how their Canisius Jesuit education benefits them on various levels.) If you can share what you are doing, COLI offers an honorarium and assistance in developing a case study of your own, to be published on this site.
