Canisius Earning Excellence Program (CEEP)

The Canisius Earning Excellence Program (CEEP) is an exciting learning and earning opportunity that pair students with Canisius faculty or off-campus supervisors for educationally rewarding experiences.  These positions of excellence are more intellectually demanding, more likely to create genuine learning for the student, more closely related to a career or scholarly field, and more directly related to faculty research than most work opportunities on campus.  

Some examples of assignments can include:

  • Science lab research assistants on faculty research projects
  • Independent library or electronic research
  • Abstract and bibliography work for humanities or social sciences professors
  • Text editors for scholarly articles
  • Statistics and computer graphics work
  • Running of subjects and collection of research protocols
  • Survey construction and analysis of results
  • Independent student research directed by a faculty member
  • College self-study work or institutional research managed by a senior administrator
  • Case study compilation for a business course
  • Report writing or drafting
  • Translation to and from a foreign language

Undergraduate students with a 3.25 cumulative average may apply for CEEP.  For more information, please read our Frequently Asked Questions.
