Facilities Master Plan

On behalf of Marco Bendedetti, vice president for Business and Finance, and the Facilities Master Planning Committee, members of the campus community are invited to preview a draft of the facilities master plan developed by the committee over the past year. 

The plan aligns with the college’s mission and strategic plan, Canisius 150, and takes into account campus survey data and various facilities studies to establish a vision for the future. Faculty and staff are welcome to review the plan and submit any questions or comments here by Friday, April 5.

Kittens Arrive on Campus March 25

Kittens will once again take up residence in the Margaret L. Wendt Animal Behavior lab in Science Hall from Monday, March 25 – Monday, April 15 and from Monday, April 22 – Thursday, May 2.  The campus community is invited to view training and enrichment sessions.

Miranda K. Workman’s ABEC 220: Animal Learning class, in cooperation with the SPCA Serving Erie County, will welcome five kittens for enrichment and training.

The sessions include teaching the kittens to walk into a carrier on their own and completing a small agility course, which makes them attractive adoption candidates and encourages positive relationships with humans that will help kittens transition to their new families. Stress and anxiety attached to catching and putting cats in a carrier are major reasons why cats are seen less often by veterinarians.

For these kittens, there will be no stress or anxiety, as they will choose to enter the carrier by themselves.

The kittens will be on campus until Thursday, May 2, and will then be available for adoption.  The days and times for enrichment are:
