Celebrating 50 Years of Women at Canisius INSIDE: The 2014-2015 Annual Report of Donors



Canisius College Magazine FALL 2015 VOLUME 16, ISSUE 3

We mark one of the great milestones in Canisius College history

President John J. Hurley

this fall with the 50th anniversary of the college becoming fully coeducational. As we look back, it now seems amazing that Canisius went 95 years without women in its principal school, the day division of the College of Arts & Sciences. (Women were admitted into the day division of the Business School in fall 1961.

Vice President for Advancement William M. Collins Director of Public Relations & Executive Editor Eileen C. Herbert ’04, MS ’15

Prior to that, the evening business division and graduate programs in education for teachers admitted women but these were much smaller programs). Canisius has grown from a day college of no female students to one where women make up 54 percent of the full-time undergraduate population. What took Canisius so long? In fairness, at this time, much of higher education was segregated by sex. In Canisius College: The First Hundred Years, Dr. Charles A. Brady observed:

“For too long Oxford’s Dr. [Richard] Whately had spoken for all Academe when he said, ‘A woman is a creature that cannot reason and pokes the fire from the top.’ He may have been right about the ‘fire.’ As the Canisius Dean’s List between 1965 and 1970 made embarrassingly evident, he was wrong about the ‘reason.’” And the intervening 50 years have made that even more plainly evident. We celebrate in this issue the place of women at Canisius and especially some of those first women who blazed the trail here on campus. It’s impossible to recognize all of our illustrious women at Canisius but one does stand out: the late dean of women and first female vice president at Canisius Lillian M. Levey MS ’67, HON ’03. Throughout her long career at Canisius, she championed the cause of women in her quiet, persistent and effective way. She helped make possible so many great things accomplished by so many great Canisius women over the past 50 years. While I am on the subject of people who make great things possible, I need to recognize the thousands of loyal donors to Canisius, whose names are in this issue’s honor roll. Year in and year out, our donors provide the margin of excellence in our students’ education. They make possible financial aid to deserving students, research opportunities with faculty, and extra-curricular and co-curricular activities that are an essential part of a Canisius education. On behalf of our students who benefit from your generosity, a sincere Thank You!

On the cover: Alfrieda M. (Haas) Sutz ’65 was one of only eight women (six freshmen and two junior transfers) who enrolled full-time in the day division of the School of Business Administration, when it opened its doors to women in 1961. Four years later – 50 years ago this fall – Canisius began admitting women in all of its academic day divisions.

blue&goldbriefs Griff Center Says Hello to Handshake Canisius alumni now have new, innovative career development tools at their fingertips via the Griff Center for Academic Engagement. The center launched Handshake this fall, a modern job search and career recruitment platform that matches applicants with potential employers. The new software replaces College Central. “Handshake enables Canisius to bridge the recruiting gap so that we can deliver exceptional support to our students, alumni and employers interested in hiring our graduates,” says Anne Marie Dobies ’92, MS ’99, MS ’06, assistant vice president and director of the Griff Center. Once alumni create a Handshake profile, they can filter and find the most relevant jobs related to their career preferences and post resumes. There are currently more than 850 employers enrolled in Handshake. If alumni are interested in creating an employer account to “Hire a Griff,” they can publish job openings, search for prospective candidates, view applicants’ profiles and even request interviews. But today’s job market is about more than posting well-crafted resumes and cover letters online. “It’s about having a job search strategy, networking and connecting with the right people, and making a great impression,” adds Dobies. The career coaches at the Griff Center are equipped to provide these services to alumni at every stage of their career development. The team is trained in identifying potential employment opportunities based on individuals’ interests or experiences, building online professional profiles and conducting practice interviews to help potential candidates distinguish themselves from the competition.

Networking and professional development opportunities are also available through the Griff Center. Events such as career panels, networking nights and luncheons with Western New York business leaders enable alumni to expand their Canisius network. More than 150 people attended the Griff Center’s recent Take the Next Step event, which connected alumni with leaders from the college’s 35-plus graduate programs, as well as representatives from Western New York’s top businesses and non-profits including Yahoo, People Inc., Rich Products, Catholic Charities, Geico and New Era. Many of these companies brought employees who are alumni of the college to share their experiences and successes. “The Canisius alumni network is extensive, varied and well-connected, and these professionals are eager to share their knowledge, resources and opportunities with fellow Canisius alumni,” concludes Dobies. “At the Griff Center, it’s our job to make sure those connections happen and lead to successful outcomes.” Established in 2014, the Griff Center for Academic Engagement takes a holistic approach to student engagement and advisement, in addition to career services. It serves as a one-stop shop of programs and resources designed to engage and support students academically during their four years on campus, and professionally once they graduate.

blue&goldbriefs Canisius Celebrates Papal Visit Pope Francis’ recent visit to the United States is a memory that won’t soon be forgotten by members of the Canisius community. The pontiff spent six days in Washington D.C., New York City and Philadelphia. Canisius students, faculty and staff followed and – in some instances – participated in the Pope’s historic visit. Christopher Gates ’16, editor-in-chief of The Griffin, and Kyle Ferrara ’16, the features editor, covered the Canonization Mass of Junípero Serra in Washington, D.C. The Canisius students were among nearly 8,000 reporters from media outlets around the world, who applied for and received credentials to cover the Pope’s visit. Also representing Canisius was Kevin Fields ’08. The alumnus had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to serve alongside Pope Francis during the Canonization Mass. Fields is a seminarian at Mount St. Mary’s Seminary in Emmitsburg, MD. Pope Francis’ U.S. visit concluded with an outdoor Mass in Philadelphia. Nine Canisius students traveled to the city with Campus Ministry Director Mike Hayes and Associate Professor of English Rev. James M. Pribek, SJ. Once in Philly, the group walked five miles to Benjamin Franklin Parkway, the site of the Papal Mass, which they watched on a nearby large-screen TV. During Mass, Father Pribek offered communion to the small contingent of Canisius students. Back on campus, the college hosted a “Pope Watch Party” for members of the Canisius community who wanted to hear Pope Francis’ address before the U.S. Congress. Professors also organized “Reflections on Pope Francis’ Visit and Encyclical.” The panel discussion addressed ways in which Canisius can respond to the pontiff’s call for action. In spring 2015, Canisius will introduce a new All-College Honors seminar titled Pope Francis: 21st Century Thinker. Father Pribek will instruct the course.

Coaching Legend, MacKinnon ’50, MS ’62, Passes Away Canisius lost a great coaching legend and friend on July 7 with the passing of Robert A. MacKinnon ’50, MS ’62. He was 87. MacKinnon’s history at Canisius was extensive. As a student-athlete, he played four seasons of varsity basketball, tallying 591 career points in 103 games. MacKinnon also played third base on the Canisius baseball team. After graduation, MacKinnon pursued a professional sports career. He played baseball for the Brooklyn Dodgers organization, and later basketball for the Syracuse Nationals before returning to alma mater in 1953 to become head baseball coach, freshman basketball coach and varsity basketball assistant coach. A few years later, Canisius promoted MacKinnon to head basketball coach and athletic director. During his tenure as the Griff’s head coach (1959-1972), MacKinnon posted 142 wins, which included the memorable 1963 season when the Blue and Gold went 19-7 overall before eventually falling to Providence in the NIT Championship game at Madison Square Garden. MacKinnon is a member of the first induction class to Canisius’ Sports Hall of Fame (1963). WEB EXTRA

facultyresearch What Dreams May Come James P. Donnelly, PhD, and colleagues at the Center for Hospice and Palliative Care, examine the significance of end-of-life dreams and visions It’s not uncommon for people to have extraordinary dreams or visions in the final weeks of their lives. Accounts of pre-death visions span recorded history but have been absent from scientific literature. A recent study in the Journal of Palliative Medicine by Associate Professor James P. Donnelly, PhD and colleagues found that endof-life dreams and visions (ELDVs) are an intrinsic and comforting part of the dying process. “These dreams and visions may improve quality of life and should be treated accordingly,” Donnelly says. The 66 patients in the study were receiving end-of-life care at the Center for Hospice and Palliative Care in Cheektowaga, NY. Donnelly and his colleagues (Christopher Kerr, MD, PhD; Pei Grant, PhD; and doctoral student Scott Wright) interviewed the patients daily about the content, frequency and comfort level of their ELDVs. This is the first study to interview patients about their ELDV experiences in the last weeks of life. Previous studies were limited to retrospective information from clinicians or family members. The researchers found that “the most common dreams and visions were of deceased relatives or friends.” Dreams and visions about the deceased were “significantly more comforting” to patients than other kinds of ELDVs, and became more frequent as the person approached death. “This study demonstrates that ELDVs are commonly experienced and characterized by a consistent pattern of realism and emotional significance,” Donnelly says. The study noted that some medical professionals tend to discount pre-death dreams and visions. “If they are seen as delusions or hallucinations, they are treated as problems to be controlled,” according to Donnelly. But there is an important distinction between ELDVs and delirium. The study concluded: During a delirium state, the person has lost his connection to reality and ability to communicate rationally. Delirium is distressing and dangerous, and must be treated medically. In contrast, this study shows that ELDVs are typically comforting, realistic and often very meaningful, highlighting a critical difference. James P. Donnelly, PhD, is associate professor of counseling and human services and director of measurement & statistics for the Institute for Autism Research at Canisius College.



home ice advantage CANISIUS' HOCKEY PROGRAM SCORES ON AND OFF THE ICE IN NEW HOME AT HARBORCENTER Story by: Kristin E. Etu ’91 / Photos by: Tom Wolf '86

Hockey fans were on their feet. Just 22 seconds into the game, off a rush, Canisius forward Shane Conacher ’17 slipped a puck past the Ohio State net-minder. The crowd of nearly 2,000, clad in Canisius blue and gold, erupted. That goal put more than the first point on the scoreboard; it showed that the Golden Griffins were finally home. It was nearly one year ago, October 31, 2014, that Canisius christened its new home in HARBORCENTER in downtown Buffalo. This new season, which opened October 10 against Penn State, marks the first full schedule the Ice Griffs will play in the $172 million hockey and entertainment complex. Expectations are great and appreciation is even greater. “We play with passion, energy and an enthusiasm that the team draws from the crowd – that is what home ice advantage is,” Head Coach David Smith says. “My goal and the goal of the program is to make Golden Griffins’ games at HARBORCENTER a destination on Friday and Saturday nights. Let’s turn the music up, get the kids excited about the fast pace of the game and make it a special place.”



In many ways, it already is. Attendance numbers during the first season at HARBORCENTER jumped 50 percent from the previous season to an average of 1,100 per game. The fan experience is further enhanced with a Tim Hortons and (716) Food and Sport. The hockey-themed sports bar serves concessions in the arena during games. For Smith, his players and the Canisius community, HARBORCENTER is a coveted college venue. The complex features two NHL-sized rinks and Impact Sports Performance, a 4,500-square-foot, state-of-the-art hockey training facility that enables Canisius to recruit, train and develop elite players from around the country and the world. “This is a huge leap forward for us,” Smith says. “We are able to get into homes of the top recruits now because we have such a unique facility.” As the primary tenant of HARBORCENTER, Canisius plays all home games on the feature rink with a capacity crowd of 1,800. HARBORCENTER is the first-of-its-kind partnership between the National Hockey League and a college.

“Having a strong Division I hockey team play at HARBORCENTER helps the Buffalo Sabres organization to grow hockey in the community,” says Michael M. Gilbert ’90, vice president for public and community relations for the Buffalo Sabres. “Practically speaking, it’s convenient for our scouts to go over and watch Canisius games, and it benefits the college players because they all want to make it to the NHL someday.” Shane Conacher is no exception. He plans to follow in the footsteps of his older brother, Cory ’11, who spent several years in the NHL before recently signing a two-year contract with the SC Bern of the Swiss National League. “A few times, the Sabres practiced before or after us,” Shane Conacher says. “We were able to watch the practice and interact with the players. It’s pretty cool to see first-hand what the pro-hockey world is all about.” The professional hockey environment includes a top-notch locker room, made possible by donor support. The 1,300-square-foot space features a dry area, lounge, separate changing rooms, coaches’ suites and six high-definition televisions. “It really changes the mindset of a player when he has his own space,” Ralph Cuddemi ’16 says. “The team now spends more time together, whether it’s on the ice or in the lounge. We have coffee, play Xbox or watch game videos. The new space has definitely bonded us as a team.” Photos of Canisius hockey alumni cover the locker room walls, reminding current players about the hockey legacy of Canisius.

“To look around and see the faces of the players who built this program, it inspires us,” Cuddemi says. “We wouldn’t have this incredible home rink without their hard work.” Attorney Joseph R. Casacci ’80 is one of those trailblazers. He was the Ice Griffs’ first varsity captain and lobbied the college to upgrade the team from club to varsity. “Back when we were paving the way, our dream was to have a home rink,” Casacci says. “It’s important for the current players to have an appreciation of the hard work and sacrifices made by the players who came before them, and to recognize that it is an honor and a privilege to play for Canisius College.” HARBORCENTER hosts international hockey tournaments and the NHL Combine, which involves physical testing of more than 100 NHL prospects. HARBORCENTER will also host the NHL draft in 2016. These high-profile events place Canisius College in the national sports spotlight. “When people walk through the door at HARBORCENTER, they immediately know it is the home of Canisius College hockey,” Gilbert says. “They realize it is the same facility where the Buffalo Sabres operate. That can only raise awareness for the Golden Griffins.” “HARBORCENTER is in every conversation about hockey right now,” Smith adds. “Word is quickly spreading about the beauty and uniqueness of our facility. It’s like a small fire that is quickly spreading and it’s great to be part of it.”



facultynotes $1.3 Million Grant Awarded to Institute for Autism Research The U.S. Department of Defense Autism Research Program awarded a four-year, $1.3 million grant to the Institute for Autism Research (IAR) at Canisius College. IAR researchers will use the grant to conduct a clinical trial of its MAXout program, a unique outpatient treatment for high-functioning children with autism spectrum disorder (HFASD). MAXout treatment targets restricted and repetitive behaviors, as well as social, emotion-recognition and non-literal language skills through the use of direct instruction, modeling, role-play, performance feedback, and behavioral reinforcement provided by staff clinicians. Treatment sessions are 90 minutes each, twice per week over 18 weeks. Results of a pilot MAXout study indicated significant gains in children’s social-communication skills and a reduction in their ASD symptoms. The grant provides the necessary funding to study the MAXout treatment in a randomized clinical trial, which will allow for a clear determination of the effectiveness of the outpatient treatment. The principal investigators on the MAXout research grant are Christopher Lopata, PsyD, Marcus L. Thomeer, PhD, James P. Donnelly, PhD and Jonathan D. Rogers, PhD. WEB EXTRA Sarah Mangold ’17, a biology and psychology dual major, works with children with HFASD who receive treatment at the Institute for Autism Research.

NSF Grant Supports Wood’s Study of Physics Phenomenon Associate Professor of Physics Michael H. Wood, PhD, will use a new threeyear, $105,000 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to investigate how subatomic particles are created. “About one micro-second after the Big Bang, the universe cooled enough for subatomic particles to combine into protons and neutrons,” explains Wood, whose research focuses on how and why that happened. The answers could help experimental nuclear physicists, such as Wood, “figure out the dynamics of the nucleus and the very nature of matter itself.” Wood will conduct his research at Canisius and at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility in Newport News, VA, which is operated by the Department of Energy. Collaborating with him are researchers from Old Dominion University, Argonne National Laboratory and the Universidad Téchnica Federico Santa Maria in Chile. Canisius physics majors will assist with data analysis.

arbara (Kiedrowski) Shuckra ’63 didn’t intend to be a trailblazer. She simply wanted to earn an accounting degree from Canisius and pursue a career with the Internal Revenue Service. Instead, Shuckra and seven other like-minded young women were part of a bold social experiment on campus in 1961: They became the first female students to enroll in the day division at Canisius. “I was in my sophomore year at Rosary Hill College (now Daemen College) when a nun told me the school was closing its accounting program,” recalls Shuckra. “That same day, my mother read in The Buffalo Evening News that Canisius was opening up the business school’s day division to women. Go figure! I transferred to Canisius the following year.”

The First Ones Shuckra and her counterparts weren’t the first female students to set foot on Canisius’ campus. Around the college’s half-century mark, in 1920, Canisius began to admit women – on a limited basis – to undergraduate and graduate evening courses in teacher education and business. The college opened its doors a bit wider to women in 1941 with the launch of a pre-clinical nursing program offered in conjunction with Sisters and Mercy hospitals. The nurses attended classes in the evening. However, when World War II took a toll on traditional enrollment, Canisius allowed the nurses to attend some day classes. More women matriculated to Canisius’ evening programs over the next 10-plus years, slowly chipping away at Canisius’ all-male atmosphere. Still, those women remained in a class of their own.

Barbara (Haefner) Heim ’74 (top left) became the first female president of the Undergraduate Student Association in 1972. She is pictured here with (front) Margaret McCoskey ’73, Ross Amico ’73 and (top) Bill Heim Sr. ’73.

Soon after the School of Business Administration admitted women to its day division, pressure began to build for Canisius to become a fully coeducational college. Appeals came from parents and guidance counselors in public and private schools. Canisius faculty members, both lay and Jesuit, signed a petition calling upon the college to “hasten the time of women’s entry.” A majority of alumni voiced their support. And, the male student body supported the admission of women into the classrooms. “It made no sense to limit the women to just one school,” says James P. Hagan ’66, former president of the Undergraduate Student Association. “If Canisius was going to allow women to come to the college, then they should be able to pursue degrees in whatever programs Canisius offered, not just those in the School of Business.” The Board of Trustees responded to the appeals. In September 1965 – 50 years ago this fall – Canisius opened its doors to women in all academic day divisions. The decision definitely had financial advantages. Census figures predicted a vast increase in the number of high school graduates – male and female – through 1980. New and added tuition revenue meant Canisius could better maintain its “costly physical plant” and secure “the college’s survival,” wrote former SBA Dean James L. McCarthy, PhD, in a memo to Father McGinley. Yet, archival notes overwhelmingly show that the primary impetus for change was educational, not financial. By widening the pool of applicants, Canisius could be more selective in admitting students, thereby “improving upon its highquality student body,” continued McCarthy. As more professional opportunities opened up for women, it became increasingly necessary “that they be educated along with the men with whom they will be working,” added former Dean of Men Donald A. Nair, PhD. In his report to the Board of Trustees, Father McGinley said the college “had an obligation to the community” to provide a parochial, coeducational program. “There are fine girls from fine Catholic families who do not wish to continue their educations at colleges conducted by women religious … or at tax-supported institutions.” Denise (Beiter) O’Donnell ’68 was among them. She came to Canisius from Mount St. Joseph’s Academy, an all-girls institution across the street from campus. “I was definitely interested in moving to a coed environment,” she says. “Back then, more women wanted a college education to move ahead professionally so it made sense to want to go to school with men. We were already together in society.”

The Female Effect Aside from typical freshman jitters, fear of being ignored, teased or discriminated against compounded the anxieties of the female students. Shuckra recalls with a laugh, “I never sat in the first row in any of my classes; always in an aisle seat in case I wanted to escape!” It turned out the women’s fears were largely unfounded. “The men on campus generally had three points of view,” recalls Dorothy (Logal) Gaglione ’65. “Some were extremely helpful; others not so much. Most men however, seemed to fall in between the two – they were cautiously intrigued by the women.” O’Donnell adds, “Every so often an old-guard male faculty member might crack a joke at our expense but the male students I met were all very accepting of the women and, I think, appreciated and respected the diversity and perspective we brought into the classroom.” In fact, the women shined in the classroom. “These women were not about to take a back seat to anyone,” says History Professor Walter G. Sharrow HON ’13, PhD. “They demolished the old boys’ network. The women were the new people in town and they weren’t taking any prisoners.” They amassed scholarships and received national recognitions for academic achievements. The women represented Canisius internationally, as well. Three early female students were accepted into foreign study programs and spent their junior years at institutions in Louvain, Belgium and Heidelberg, Germany. “The educational environment at Canisius was wonderful for me,” says Marta (Morozewych) Laux ’69. “Being able to exchange thoughts, ideas and opinions with the men in my classes – who very often came at things from a different perspective – encouraged me to think and reason anew. That’s stayed with me throughout my life.” It wasn’t long before Canisius altered its course offerings to be more reflective of the female student body. New classes included Women in Literature, The Feminine Role of Religion, Psychological Perspectives on Women and The Future of Marriage. Today, Canisius offers a minor program in Women and Gender Studies. “Having women on campus added immeasurably to the tone and the atmosphere of the college,” recalls Kenneth M. Sroka ’65, PhD, emeritus professor of English. “They were a catalyst for improving not only the intellectual life of the campus but the cultural and social life that was Canisius, as well.”

O’Donnell chose Canisius because of its “reputation for educating leaders in the Jesuit tradition.” Other women selected the college for its small class sizes. Still more came at the encouragement of fathers, brothers and uncles, many of whom were Canisius alumni.

The women lost no time contributing to the life of the college. They organized Initiae, a club that “brought together the new girls of Canisius as a way for them to bond and help one another out,” says first-year president Diane Sandler. The women later launched the Canisius chapter of Phi Gamma Nu, a national business honor society for female students.

“My brother (Kenneth V. Klementowski ‘62) kept bragging about Canisius and the education he received, so what else could I do but go there,” laughs Diane L. (Klementowski) Sandler ’65.

“We didn’t do it by ourselves,” recalls Alfrieda M. (Haas) Sutz ’65. “We had the tremendous support of Lillian M. Levey MS ’67, HON ’03.” The late dean of women “was determined to make female

Pictured here are a few of the remarkable women who had the guts and grace to blaze a trail at 2001 Main Street: (row 1) Michele (Halicki) Cofield ’66; (row 2, l-r) Diane (Klementowski) Sandler ’65, Alfrieda (Haas) Sutz ’65, Christine M. Licata-Culhane ’67, MS ’71, EdD; (row 3) Constance (Kucera) Weigen ’66, Paulette Notaro ’65, Magdalene (Campagna) Holt ’67; (row 4) Barbara (Blachowiak) Fox ’66, Jacqueline (Fiebelkorn) Lyons ‘69, Bernadette (Corcoran) Gaffney ’69, Mary Lou Tarquini De La Plante ’69

“It was landmark legislation that lit a fire under the progress of women at Canisius and educational institutions everywhere,” recalls Ellen O. Conley, PhD. The former vice president for student affairs was one of the few female educators at Canisius in the 1970s. Today, it’s hard to imagine a time when women weren’t an integral part of the campus. More than a half century later, female students make up 54 percent of Canisius’ full-time undergraduate population. Nearly half of the full-time faculty members are women. And for the first time in Canisius history, women hold the majority of the college’s five vice presidential positions.

students an important part of Canisius. She was a powerhouse of a woman and extremely active in getting us involved.” The men did invite women to become part of campus life. Leaders from the rifle team, glee club and cheerleading squad all encouraged women to join the traditional all-male clubs. By 1972, Canisius had its first female president of the Undergraduate Student Association, Barbara J. (Haefner) Heim ‘74. Shelley (Francolini) Maher ‘73 became the first female president of the Student Union Board. Both the Azuwur and The Griffin had their first female editors that same year; Eileen (Duch) Rolek ’73, MS ’77 and Ann E. (Schott) Burke ’73, respectfully. That same year, women’s equality took its greatest leap forward at Canisius and across the country. Congress passed Title IX of the Education Amendments Act. Though it’s most often associated with athletics, Title IX prohibits sex discrimination in any educational program or activity at all institutions that receive federal funds.

The strength of Canisius women is sure to grow and endure with the recent formation of the Women’s Leadership Council (WLC). Comprised of distinguished and influential women – many of them Canisius alumnae – the WLC engages female students, faculty, alumnae and friends of the college to prepare them for leadership roles in their chosen fields and in the community. 
And to think, it all started with a small group of determined women who had the guts and grace to blaze a trail at 2001 Main Street. “When I was in college, female role models were few and far between,” says O’Donnell, a presidentially appointed Department of Justice official in Washington, D.C. “There weren’t many women lawyers, doctors or judges but the world is always improved by diversity. To its credit, Canisius recognized this and taught me that I can compete on a level playing field.” “I don’t think of myself as a pioneer. I just wanted to learn and get a good education,” adds Gaglione. “Although looking back now, I wonder where I found the guts to do it. I really do.” Special thanks to the Rev. J. Clayton Murray, SJ, Archives and Special Collections at Canisius College, for making hundreds of historical documents available for this story. C ANI SIUS COLLEGE M AGA ZINE • FALL 2015 |

Enterprising Educator Timothy P. Weibel ’00, MS ’04 converts his classroom lessons into a viable business venture Story: Kristin E. Etu ’91 / Photography: Tom Wolf ’86

Timothy P. Weibel ’00, MS ’04 relished his days as an educator. For 10 years, he taught reading and math to third grade students at Cayuga Heights Elementary in Depew. When he wasn’t correcting homework, Weibel tinkered around at designing an educationrelated website. The result? Super Teacher Worksheets, which became a way to share with other educators the classroom lessons Weibel created for his students. Very quickly, the website earned high praise and millions of visitors each month. “It caught on for a few reasons,” Weibel says. “There wasn’t nearly as much competition in 2007 as there is today.” Because the website offered high-quality content free-of-charge, Weibel was able to attract a large base of loyal users. Soon it became apparent that Super Teacher Worksheets had the potential to become a viable business venture and Weibel was faced with a difficult decision. “I loved being a teacher but at the same time I had the opportunity to pursue something else that I really enjoyed,” he recalls. Opportunity won out. Weibel left the classroom to dedicate himself full-time to the business. He rented office space in Tonawanda, enhanced the website architecture to support more traffic and changed Super Teacher Worksheets from a free service to a paid subscription site, available to individual teachers and entire school districts. Today, Super Teacher Worksheets employs a team of 12 people who create more than 10,000 printable resources for K-5 elementary teachers including math worksheets, reading comprehension games and spelling lists. The business has more than 180,000 subscribers and averages 2 million visitors each month.

“We have subscribers from the U.S. and 210 other countries such as Australia, the United Kingdom and India, because they teach students to speak English as a second language,” Weibel says. The swift success of Super Teacher Worksheets can be attributed to Weibel’s education and experience. He holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in education from Canisius. He also knows what teachers want because he was one. Therefore his worksheet fonts look “just like the letters young students are learning to write.” Math dittos provide students “with enough room to show their work.” In-house graphic designers add engaging visuals and worksheet activities are tested in local classrooms. “We spent a recent summer working with a group of teachers to be sure that all of our worksheets aligned with the New York State Common Core standards,” Weibel says. While classroom lessons still require paper and pencil, new technologies such as laptops, iPads and digital whiteboards are quickly becoming commonplace in the classroom. This prompted Weibel to launch Modern Chalkboard in 2012. “Most teachers are educated in SMART Board technology but don’t have the time to create in-depth lessons to present to their classes,” he says. A single lesson can take up to 10-plus hours to create, Weibel explains. “Our goal is to make teachers’ jobs easier so we provide them with ready-to-use digital content.” Despite not being in the classroom, this Canisius entrepreneur remains an educator at heart. “My Canisius professors were true experts in the field,” he says. “I am proud to pass along the concepts they taught me, through Super Teacher Worksheets and Modern Chalkboard.” C ANI SIUS COLLEGE M AGA ZINE • FALL 2015 |



Stars in His Eyes Voice coach Andy Anselmo '45 spent his career teaching celebrities to sing Story: Kristin E. Etu ’91 / Photography: Tom Wolf ’86

Andy Anselmo ’45 always had stars in his eyes. Growing up on Buffalo’s West Side, his beloved Aunt Mamie took him to the fivecent movies on Saturdays where he imagined rubbing elbows with celebrities from the silver screen. Anselmo set his mind to make that dream a reality and he had the voice to make it all possible. Best known as the “voice coach to the stars,” Anselmo taught and performed with some of the greatest names in show business including Liza Minelli, Tony Bennett, Mandy Patinkin, Eartha Kitt and his all-time favorite, Geraldine Fitzgerald. “I could tell the ones who were going to make it,” he says. “There is a particular energy had by people who are destined to do this kind of work.”

Canisius on a scholarship. To help pay the balance of his tuition, he performed on “Armed Forces Mail Call,” a radio program that entertained American soldiers during World War II. Anselmo was accompanied by a 12-piece orchestra. That’s when he knew he was on the right track. He says, “I thought then, ‘Hey, I can do this as a profession.’” Anselmo earned a degree in pre-law from Canisius and went on to study music at the New England Conservatory in Boston under William L. Whitney, “one of the greatest singers of the early 1900s.” Whitney taught Anselmo the Bel Canto method, a scientific approach to singing practiced by 18th-century Italians. Whitney’s influence carried Anselmo far. He sang on Broadway in prestigious venues such as the Palace Theatre in New York and at The Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach. He performed on “The Jackie Gleason Show” and the “Phyllis Diller Show,” until one day actor and comedian Charles Nelson Reilly offered Anselmo a piece of advice. “He said ‘You should teach people to sing,’” Anselmo says. “I never intended to teach but those words were life-changing for me.” In 1978, Anselmo and the late pianist and composer John Harris co-founded the Singer’s Forum, which offered classes and seminars dedicated to the development of vocal arts. Anselmo taught the basic principles of singing (“how to breathe, where to place the sound, how to free the throat and the need for real energy”) to Liza, Tony and Eartha, as well as Joanne Woodward, Regis Philbin and Mary Tyler Moore. Pictures of him with the famous faces he coached adorn the walls of his Williamsville home.

Anselmo is one of them. He wanted to sing “from the day he was born.” That insatiable ambition took hold by age eight when Anselmo began performing at local nightclubs. “Everyone showed up on the weekends to hear me sing – relatives, friends and neighbors.”

Now 91, Anselmo is retired though he continues to foster the vocal talents of potential young performers. The Andy Anselmo ’45 Endowed Music Scholarship, which he founded at Canisius in 2004, supports students who pursue studies in vocal music.

Anselmo fine-tuned his passion at the Community Music School of Buffalo. Though his parents encouraged their son’s singing career, they also insisted he obtain a college education. Anselmo attended

His advice to them: “If you can visualize your goals, you can make them come true.” Anselmo’s star-crossed life is a testament to that.

Annual Report of Donors

In this issue of Canisius Magazine, the college is proud to recognize the generous individuals, corporations and foundations that made philanthropic gifts to Canisius during fiscal year 2014-2015. We sincerely appreciate this support.


Thanks to your generosity, gifts to Canisius totaled $7,442,270.

Canisius Fund $3,143,184.00 Endowment $3,624,437.00 Capital $674,649.00 TOTAL $7,442,270.00

Every year, thousands of alumni and friends support the college with gifts to our Canisius Fund and 2014-2015 was no exception. Thanks to your overwhelming generosity and loyalty, the college’s annual fundraising campaign took in more than $3 million. The Canisius Fund supports virtually every corner of the college – our students, faculty and programs. It also provides Canisius with the financial wherewithal and flexibility to give students a transformational education, and prepare them for lives of service and accomplishment. The 2014-2015 year also saw the establishment of 11 new endowed scholarships and funds. Additionally, the total market value of the Canisius endowment rose 5.8 percent, from the previous year, to $110 million. Endowed funds for scholarships, academic programs and professorships provide a dependable source of income, year after year, for students and designated programs. Private support of Canisius plays a critical role in the continued strength of the college and as such, the participation in the Canisius Fund, of as many alumni as possible, is our goal. Not only does a high participation rate translate into valuable financial support of the college, it improves our rankings in U.S. News & World Report and conveys an important message to potential funders.

THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING CANISIUS COLLEGE Every effort has been made to ensure accuracy in the compilation of these donor lists. Unfortunately, errors and omissions can sometimes occur. Should your name be misspelled, listed incorrectly or omitted, please accept our sincere apologies. Please direct your inquiries to Katherine Huck, director of advancement services, at 716-8888211 or

Thank you to everyone listed in this year’s giving report. Your generosity is exemplary and we cannot thank you enough for making Canisius a philanthropic priority. Every gift, no matter the size, makes a difference and ensures that Canisius remains the extraordinary place that we love.

This report reflects: All levels of donor support for annual, capital and/or endowment purposes, received by Canisius College from June 1, 2014 through and including May 31, 2015.

On behalf of Canisius College, our sincerest thank you.

Lema is a founding member and chair of the college’s Medical Advisory Board, a group of more than 40 medical professionals (nearly all of whom are Canisius alumni) who engage pre-med students in a myriad of medical experiences and specialties. Lema, along with vice chair James Budny ‘70, MD, also initiated the board’s Medical Alumni Endowed Scholarship Fund, which alleviates students’ financial obligations so they may focus solely on their studies. “Our goal is to ensure that Canisius students are among the most attractive and relevant applicants to medical admissions committees,” Lema says. He proudly notes that nearly 90 percent of Canisius’ pre-med students are accepted into the medical schools of their choice.* Lema is now challenging alma mater’s nearly 1,000 physicians and healthcare providers to support the future of science and medicine at Canisius with a gift to Science Hall. The college seeks to raise $35 million to complete the second and third floors of the college’s interdisciplinary science building. “Today’s medical field is not just anatomy and physiology; it is biologists, chemists, computer scientists and mathematicians all working together to prevent disease and contribute to the care of patients,” adds Lema. “A gift to Science Hall is a rare opportunity for medical alumni to support an initiative that is sure to pay dividends for Canisius students, just as Buffalo’s medical corridor begins to take shape.” Photography: Sandra Kieman



*Five-year average for students recommended by the college who applied to allopathic or osteopathic programs.

leadershipsociety Young Alumnus Joins Leadership Society Nathan Walkow ’14 helps others benefit from a Canisius education As an undergraduate marketing major, Nathan R. Walkow ’14 took full advantage of his educational experiences outside the classroom. “My internship at ADPRO Sports enabled me to become involved with an incredible company and gave me the chance to learn what types of careers I could pursue after graduation,” Walkow says. He is equally appreciative of the rich knowledge he acquired in the classroom. “I am grateful for the opportunity to work with dedicated professors who have connections in the business world.” Walkow is pursuing a master’s degree in sport administration at Canisius. A member of the Leadership Society, he strongly believes in giving back to the institution that continues to provide him with a first-rate education. “Everyone should have the opportunity to pursue higher education,” Walkow concludes. “Giving to the Canisius Fund is a good way to help other students benefit from all that Canisius has to offer.”

canisiusfund Downing Magis Challenge Exceeds Goal


Canisius Fund thanks all donors

General Chair & Leadership Chair John L. Langer ‘76

The Downing Magis Challenge, which took place during the Canisius Fund’s 2014-15 annual campaign, was a tremendous success. Thanks to the generosity of our extraordinary community of donors, the initiative raised close to $850,000 more than double its goal. The money raised, from 2,538 donors, will provide additional funding for tuition assistance and scholarships, and academic and athletic programs and initiatives that will continue to strengthen the college’s Jesuit educational mission. The challenge was made possible through the estate of the late Franklin G. Downing HON ’11, who personified the Jesuit ideal of giving more. The Downing Challenge matched new and increased gift amounts up to $250,000.

The Rev. James M. Demske ’47, SJ, Society Established in 1982, the Rev. James M. Demske ’47, SJ, Society honors alumni and friends who include Canisius College in their estate plans. Like Father Demske, who served as president of the college from 1966 until 1993, members of the society help to secure an even brighter future for Canisius College and its students and, at the same time, forever tie their legacy to the legacy of leadership at Canisius College.

demskeplannedgiving A Lasting Legacy Timothy Hoelscher ’76 makes a Canisius education engaging and affordable Timothy J. Hoelscher ’76 was overwhelmed with pride when his daughter, Erin M. Hoelscher ’93, became a legacy at Canisius. “I felt confident that with her Canisius degree, my daughter would be well-prepared to face any obstacles because I know, personally, the value of a Canisius degree,” states Hoelscher. Hoelscher came to Canisius in 1974, after finishing a four-year commitment in the U.S. Air Force. He says Canisius nourished him academically, spiritually and socially. Now, Hoelscher is giving back to the college that he says provided him with so much. Through a planned gift to Canisius, Tim Hoelscher and his wife, Cecelia (Chi Chi), have set aside funds to establish an endowed scholarship. Their gift will help make a Canisius education engaging and affordable to students for many years to come. “I hope I can serve as an example for other alumni,” notes Hoelscher. “A planned gift – no matter the size – helps provide the opportunities that make a Canisius education unique and enables students to reach their full potentials.”

Support for the Sciences Shirley Struchen MA ’79 creates scholarship in memory of mother and grandmother Shirley W. Struchen MA ’79 established The May Murdzia Whipple & Emma Krakat Murdzia Scholarship in memory of her mother and grandmother. The scholarship supports academically qualified students who are majoring in the sciences and working with Roswell Park Cancer Institute. This scholarship pairs two places that are close to Struchen’s heart. “Both my mom and grandmother received wonderful care at Roswell when they were fighting cancer,” she says. Struchen cites the college’s reputation as a leader in science education and the value of its new interdisciplinary science building, Science Hall. Canisius and Roswell work together to provide research internships for students. This scholarship, says Struchen, supports the pairing of two great institutions. “My mother and grandmother would be so happy to know that scholarships in their names will provide students with a Canisius education in the sciences and prepare them for professions in the medical field and life sciences.”



Blue & Gold Club Donors to the Blue & Gold Fund gave Canisius something to cheer about this past year. Contributions to support Canisius College athletics totaled $351,137 from a record 681 donors. Gifts to the Blue & Gold Fund enhance scholarships, academic support services for student-athletes, recruitment of new talent and team travel. Golden Griffin student-athletes continue to excel both in competition and in the classroom because of annual Blue & Gold Fund gifts. The generosity of Blue & Gold Fund donors helps make the championship difference in providing critical resources for the college’s 20 Golden Griffin teams.
