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 2022-23 CEEP Scholarships. 

The scholarships were granted to 59 students with 32 faculty members serving as mentors.  To view the list of this year’s recipients, faculty mentors and their projects, click 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!

May 2022 Faculty Writing Retreat

We are pleased to announce that Academic Affairs will sponsor the 2022 Faculty Writing Retreat this May 23 – 26 at the Beaver Hollow Conference Center in Java, NY. Faculty scholarship is critical to the academic excellence of Canisius, and time for scholarship has been far too lean in the past two years. With this opportunity, we hope to provide the gift of time and recognize the importance of scholarship at the college.

Meals, snacks and beverages will be provided. Participants will have a private room and bathroom with plenty of space to work and find inspiration in this beautiful natural setting. We will arrive the afternoon of Monday, May 23 and depart after lunch on Thursday, May 26. You are welcome to book additional time at your expense. We ask that you plan to come alone so that colleagueship among members of the group can be strengthened. 

Each day, the only planned events will be dinner and a happy hour, during which we will share our work with each other. The rest of the time on the retreat will be to spend on scholarship/writing. We hope that the retreat gives a chance to further our scholarly and creative projects as well as get to know our colleagues a bit better.

Applications are due by Monday, April 18th. Please click here to complete the brief application process.

Please direct any questions to Jenn Lodi-Smith, Assistant Vice President of Academic Affairs at lodismij@canisius.edu.
