On Thursday afternoon, the Strategic Planning and Prioritization Committee held a forum in which we presented the draft of the strategic pillars and some bulleted objectives for each.  We also presented several cross-cutting themes that exist within each pillar that you won’t see explicitly referenced. These include Jesuit mission; Diversity, equity, and inclusion; Athletics as a vehicle for education, campus culture, engagement, enrollment; Sustainability–both environmental and institutional; Enrollment and retention; and Financial stability and resources (grants, fundraising, scholarships, etc.). We then asked attendees to provide feedback  on our pillars and objectives.

For anyone who could not attend, we wanted to provide the opportunity to contribute at this stage of the process by commenting on our draft pillars and some objectives.  We have created a survey to collect objectives from any member of the community.  The survey is available at  Responses are completely anonymous, so the survey is limited to the Canisius community (please note that you are required be logged into your google drive through Canisius).  The survey will remain open through 5pm on Wednesday,  March 8th.

Thank you for considering contributing.
