United We Win

Did you know that as a donor to the United Way, you have the opportunity to help your favorite charitable organization?  You have the option within the online pledge form to search a 501 C-3 of your choice and designate all or a portion of your total pledge to them.  This allows you to make all of your charitable giving in one place, then have it deducted from your bi-weekly pay. Its so easy!

Congratulations to Lynn Incardona, Human Resources Associate and Karl Kozlowski, Professor of Kinesiology (pictured above), two recent winners of the United Way pledge campaign prize drawing.  Remember, when you donate to the 2023 Canisius campaign, your name will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a prize basket.  The united way is also giving away prizes each week to donors who pledge just $1 a week; the grand prize is a pair of 2024 Buffalo Bills Season Tickets!

Pledge Your Support to the United Way

As President Stoute mentioned in his Email on September 25, “to Find Your Way is to recognize and amplify the collective power we all have to make meaningful change in the community where we work and live.”

Canisius University is part of the fabric of this community and our ability to make a difference in Erie County remains constant. We have officially launched our United Way campaign.  With our support, the United Way and its affiliates can help create better lives for our neighbors in need.

Please know that you do have the ability to designate your favorite charity as the recipient of all or part of your donation.

Each week we will conduct a prize drawing from the list of donors. We have received gifts from the staff of Academic Affairs, Athletics, the Bookstore, the Library, PA Studies, Human Resources, and Institutional Advancement for you to choose from. The united way is also giving away PRIZES each week to donors who pledge just $1 a week; the grand prize is a pair of 2024 Buffalo Bills Home Game Season Tickets!

Our first 2023 Campaign Event will be a CHILI COOKOFF on  Wednesday, October 25, 2023, from 12:00 – 1:30 p.m. in the Old Main Faculty Lounge.

Attend the MSCHE Campus Forum TODAY

Dr. Anne Wahl, our Middle States Vice President Liaison will hold an open forum for faculty, staff and students today, August 30, 2023, from 12:30 – 1:30 pm in the Science Hall Commons. This is the next step of our reaccreditation process which began last fall.   This process will require involvement across all areas of the university, so broad participation will facilitate a comprehensive and inclusive self-study report and if your schedule permits, we strongly encourage you to make arrangements to join the open forum.

Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) accreditation is essential for Canisius to access U.S. Department of Education Title IV funding (federal financial aid, including PELL grants, GI Bill) and state funding (including TAP, HEOP, Bundy Aid, HECap grants) that afford so many of our students the opportunity to attend Canisius.

Invitation to Attend the MSCHE Campus Forum

Canisius is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) and this accreditation is essential for Canisius to access U.S. Department of Education Title IV funding (federal financial aid, including PELL grants, GI Bill) and state funding (including TAP, HEOP, Bundy Aid, HECap grants) that afford so many of our students the opportunity to attend Canisius. Last fall, we initiated the reaccreditation process by identifying our team members, attending trainings and developing the self-study design.

The next step of our reaccreditation process is a visit by our Middle States Vice President Liaison, Dr. Anne Wahl. She will hold an open forum for faculty, staff and students on Wednesday, August 30, 2023, from 12:30 – 1:30 pm in the Science Hall Commons, which is the beginning of our critical self-study process. This process will require involvement across all areas of the university, so broad participation will facilitate a comprehensive and inclusive self-study report.

If your schedule permits, we strongly encourage you to make arrangements to join the open forum.
