WNYTR Hosts School Partner Meet-and-Greet

Students in the Western New York Teacher Residency (WNYTR) graduate program are fast approaching their residency year. The WNYTR network of school partners were invited to campus on April 20 to meet each resident. School partners included: Buffalo Public Schools, West Buffalo Charter School, King Center Charter School, Elmwood Village Charter School and Stanley G. Falk School.

In a series of mini interviews, Cohort 5 residents learned what each school has to offer and school leaders were introduced to each resident’s unique background and qualifications.

This is one of several steps that WNY Teacher Residents complete prior to beginning their residency year, which includes touring partner schools, meeting school leaders and mentor teachers, and matching with a school after a rigorous review process. 

The next WNYTR event will be Interview Day on April 27 for Cohort 6 applicants. This event will be held at Stanley Makowski, Buffalo Public School #99.

CEEP Scholarship Recipients Announced

On behalf of the Canisius Earning Excellence Program (CEEP) Review and Recommendation Committee, Jenn Lodi-Smith, PhD, assistant vice president for academic affairs, is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2023-24 CEEP Scholarships.

The scholarships were granted to 64 students with 42 faculty members serving as mentors.  The list of this year’s recipients, faculty mentors and their projects are listed above and can also be viewed by clicking here .

CEEP is an exciting learning and earning opportunity that pairs students with Canisius faculty for educational and rewarding experiences. These positions are intellectually demanding, create opportunities for applied learning outside the classroom, are closely related to a career or scholarly field and directly related to faculty scholarship. By working with faculty on research-focused projects, students are able to achieve a high level of preparedness for maintaining professional working relationships and for continued studies at the graduate level.

Congratulations to all the recipients!
