On Thursday, January 25, President Stoute announced that Canisius will invest $1 million over the next five years to fund innovative concepts and practices that have the potential to advance the university’s strategic agenda and achieve verifiable positive outcomes for students.

This opportunity is made possible by alumni and donors who responded in remarkable ways over the past year by investing in the President’s Innovation Fund. The fund enables donors to make unrestricted gifts to support initiatives with the greatest potential to move Canisius forward.

NYS Immigration Exhibit at Bouwhuis Library

Ellis Island Building, New York

The Andrew L. Bouwhuis, SJ, Library is hosting the exhibit Immigration in New York State, 1650-1950 throughout the month of February.

This exhibit focuses on European immigration to New York State from 1650 to 1950, beginning with the arrival of Dutch settlers and continuing through the end of the World Wars.  Immigrants have come to New York State for many reasons: to escape persecution, to improve their economic outlook and to build new lives.  Even in a state and nation built by immigrants, new arrivals were not always welcomed.  Despite challenges and injustices, immigrants’ experiences, knowledge and cultures have enriched our state and shaped our history, and will continue to build a vibrant, diverse and modern New York State.

The exhibit is on display on the main floor of the library and made possible by the Empire State Library Network and the WNY Library Resources Council.
