With mixed feelings, I write to tell you that Dr. Jeffrey Lindauer has decided to step down from the dean’s position and, following a fall sabbatical, return to the faculty in the Department of Kinesiology. Jeff has done an extraordinary job leading the School of Education and Human Services over the past six years.
Time and again, Jeff focused his dedication to our Jesuit mission in ways that created new opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to truly live that mission. He is an outstanding role model for a faith-filled life. During his tenure as dean, Jeff has made remarkable strides in strengthening the college’s profile in Buffalo city schools. The Center for Urban Education, Teach for America, and the Western New York Residency Program are excellent examples of his commitment to the children and the future of this community. Through his efforts, Canisius advanced conversations on race, justice, and educational equity in the region. His vision has reinforced the college’s position as a nexus between theory and practice among educational institutions at all levels.
In addition, he was critical to our successful accreditation review in 2016 and the creation of new academic programs, including the ongoing development physician’s assistant program.
He has led the SEHS with intelligence, humility, sensitivity, and foresight. It has been an honor for me to work with him over the past few years. His thoughtful and consistent leadership have built a strong culture of trust in the School of Education and Human Services and he will certainly be missed. There is no doubt, however, that Jeff’s many talents will find new outlets as he returns to the faculty in the Kinesiology Department.
I am very pleased to announce that Dr. Nancy Wallace has accepted the position of Interim Dean of the School of Education and Human Services. Her appointment becomes effective on July 22, 2019.
Please join me in gratitude for Jeff’s outstanding service and in congratulating Nancy as she assumes her new role.
All the best,
