BRAND VISION STATEMENT Who we are and what we do


Canisius educates the whole person – mind, body, and spirit – in the Jesuit tradition. From this challenging, supportive community built on intellectual exploration and real-world experiences, students graduate as prepared, curious, capable professionals ready to take on any challenge.

5


BRAND STATEMENT How we do it


Canisius College is not for the faint of heart. Our academics are challenging. Curiosity is encouraged. Thinking, required. Students undertake real-world experiences, participate in real research, and tackle real problems. Our goal is not to give them a lifetime’s worth of information. Our goal is to prepare them for a lifetime of adventures. Our education is built on 450 years of Jesuit tradition. It’s built on the principles of cura personalis – “care for the whole person,” the pursuit of excellence, and finding the good in all things. It’s built around magis (being and doing more), justice and living as men and women for others. It’s built around one commitment: to give students a broad and strong foundation that expands their minds, strengthens their bodies, and enriches their spirits. Students are challenged – and supported. The core curriculum and real-world experiences broaden their perspectives. Jesuit teachings build their character. Individualized attention, quality programs and a strong network prepare them for every challenge that lies ahead. 7


BRAND pillARS

The most important attributes and principles of Canisius College.

Transformative Learning

Commitment to Jesuit Values

Diverse study abroad opportunities in 13 countries and 20 cities.

Canisius College takes pride in being a college in the Catholic, Jesuit tradition that seeks to educate the whole person by caring for the spiritual, intellectual, emotional and physical life of the individual. This tradition promotes Catholic intellectual life, spiritual development, and service to others.

Canisius students intern with prominent local employers such as BlueCross BlueShield of WNY, Buffalo Sabres, First Niagara Financial Group, New Era Cap, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Roswell Park Cancer Institute and Rich Products. Community-Based Learning program enhances academic learning through service experiences in the community. Professor-led research opportunities.

TONE The style of expression used to convey the general character and quality of Canisius College.


ENgAgED – Students will undertake real-world experiences, participate in real research, and tackle real problems.

PASSIONATE – Every student’s education and experiences at Canisius will give them every opportunity to define their goals and determine and pursue their direction.

ENCOuRAgINg - Students will be supported – by the friends they make in class, on teams and in organizations, by faculty and staff, by the local community and by more than 42,000 alumni.

HARDwORkINg – The Canisius community is dedicated to educating the whole person – body, mind and spirit. It’s hard work in itself and only a piece of what we do. We also present every student with opportunities to work hard themselves – as engaged, passionate lifelong learners fueled by curiosity.

gENuINE – A Jesuit education isn’t a curriculum, it’s an approach to the world. We approach every aspect of the Canisius experience from our Ignatian perspective built on our principle of education for a lifetime - mind, body and spirit. 11


OuR TAgLINE A single message that represents us.


In short, we don’t have one. We can’t explain what it is to be part of the Canisius community in one pithy string of four or five words. We can invoke the ideas of exploration, discovery and challenges. They are natural expressions of our values. When we talk about exploration, discovery and challenges, we want to encourage students to follow their interests. Find their passions. Think deeply about individual ideas. Seek new meanings.

13


OuR FACuLTY AND STuDENTS Exploration should not be confused with aimless wandering. Talk to our professors; meet our seniors. You’ll hear stories of people who have followed their interests to unexpected ends - a musician earns a PhD in behavioral neuroscience; a student of dairy science becomes a Jesuit priest and a world-renown expert on James Joyce; an accounting major attends a meeting and makes connections that land her travel opportunities with two of the big four accounting firms and an internship. They didn’t fall into their futures, they pursued them because they had the support and opportunity to engage in their interests. That is what Canisius offers. Take a look…

No other symbols or logos may be created or used in conjunction with or replacement of the college logo. Electronic versions of the logo are available at MyCanisius under the Public Relations tab.
