I am pleased to present A Transformational Education: The Strategic Plan for Canisius College that was approved by our Board of Trustees in May, 2011 after substantial input and deliberation by our Trustees, Regents, and the campus community. The plan culminates a year of intensive and comprehensive strategic planning following my appointment as the 24th president of Canisius College on July 1, 2010 . For more than 140 years, Canisius has inspired students with the ideals of Ignatius Loyola and Peter Canisius, excellent academic programs, and leadership opportunities. As we contemplated Canisius’ past and began to develop our vision of the future, it became clear to us that a Canisius education can and should bring about a transformation in a student’s life. This plan defines an ambitious course to elevate the living and learning experience at Canisius and embrace our Catholic, Jesuit mission in every way. The plan is founded upon five distinct goals, each of which requires collaboration among our administrative divisions and engagement with our alumni and external partners to achieve. While our mission is squarely focused on the education we provide to our students, the plan also contemplates the important contributions Canisius expects to make to the Buffalo and Western New York community it calls home, the nation and the world. The success of our planning process, marked by honest conversations, diverse insights and inclusivity, convinces us that we have reached a genuine consensus on an inspiring vision of the future that propels us forward with hope and optimism. A plan of this magnitude will require many hands on the same oar pulling in the same direction. It will also require new resources both from operating budget and from the college’s next comprehensive campaign. We invite you to join us on this exciting journey as we create the Canisius College of the future. Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam! 3 president’s letter
