Joe Van Volkenburg

(716) 888-2875

Joe Van Volkenburg received a B.A. in history from Canisius College and a M.A. in Counseling from University of Detroit Mercy.  Joe helps Canisius students become "women and men with and for others" by organizing opportunities for them to serve the marginalized in the City of Buffalo - you'll see Joe almost daily leaving campus with a van full of students to head off to the soup kitchen or pass out sandwiches to the homeless.  Joe also serves as the liaison between Campus Ministry and athletics, organizes the Alumni Service-Immersion Program in New Orleans and is the advisor for the Canisius chapter of Habitat for Humanity.  Joe is an avid hockey fan and can often be found cheering our teams on at college events.  Don't know the Canadian national anthem?  Ask Joe - he resides in Fort Erie, Ontario and enjoys walking on the beach steps from his house during all four seasons.
