Community Report 2016
Message from President John J. Hurley
Canisius College isn’t just located in Buffalo. We’re part of Buffalo and the region. For nearly 145 years, it has been our home. And like any good neighbor, we take an active role in helping to further the city’s growth and development by using our resources – intellectual, financial and spiritual – to support and enrich the Western New York community.
Our core mission is to prepare outstanding graduates, many of whom will actively contribute to the intellectual capital and leadership of our region. But universities do so much more. At Canisius, our faculty contribute their expertise to the region’s business and service organizations. Administrators volunteer their knowledge and resources on countless community boards. The campus community, as a whole, shares its commitment to the city of Buffalo and all of Western New York, through a number of partnerships, outreach and service initiatives. Our efforts are palpable as evidenced on the following pages of this Community Report for Canisius College.
