Leadership for the Modern World 

Canisius is where leaders are made. With the mentorship of outstanding teaching faculty who have been recognized by U.S. News & World Report, our students excel in the classroom, in the studio and on the court, and go on to the top positions in their fields after graduation.

But our vision of leadership goes deeper than that. As a Jesuit institution, we are sensitive to the challenges facing our world, and we believe in the power of individuals at every level of society working with purpose and courage to make real change. True leadership means more than sitting at the top of the heap – it means standing with others to raise all of us up. 

Wherever you are in your journey, Canisius can help you build a foundation for both a rewarding career and a meaningful life. Because that’s our calling: to equip you with the knowledge, skills and confidence to go out and answer your calling. 

An Extraordinary Education

At Canisius, we’re guided by our Jesuit values that distinguishes us from other schools:

  • Principled leadership that takes personal accountability. 
  • Social justice that alleviates suffering in the world. 
  • Responsible stewardship that protects our natural resources. 
  • Rigorous pursuit of excellence that transforms mind, body and spirit.
