2018-2019 CEEP Awards Announced

On behalf of the Canisius Earning Excellence Program (CEEP) Review and Recommendation Committee, Sarah R. Morris, PhD, associate vice president for academic affairs, announces the 2018-2019 CEEP students and their mentors. The Canisius Earning Excellence Program is an exciting learning and earning opportunity that pairs students with Canisius faculty or administrators for educationally-rewarding experiences. These positions of excellence are more intellectually demanding, more likely to create genuine learning for the student, more closely related to a career or scholarly field, and more directly related to faculty research than most work opportunities on campus.
