Are you doing a year of service with an organization like Jesuit Volunteer Corps or AmeriCorps next year?

If so, we’d like to recognize you at graduation!  Every year, Canisius honors the students who are committing to a year of service by reading their names at Baccalaureate Mass, Commencement, and in the Commencement ceremony program.

If you’ve been accepted to a year of service -OR- are planning on doing a year of service but are awaiting the final placement details, please email Kaitlyn Buehlmann at with:

  • Your Name
  • The program you’ll be serving with
  • Your placement site (ex. Catholic Charities)
  • The City and State you’ll be serving in

All information must be submitted by Wednesday April 8 at the latest so that this information can be included in the commencement program before it goes to print.

Are you interested in a year of service but haven’t applied yet?  There’s still time!  Email Kaitlyn Buehlmann at if you have any questions or want to learn more about a program that would be a good fit for you.
