canisius college

Founded in 1870, Canisius College is one of 28 Jesuit colleges and universities in the nation and the premier private university in Western New York. Canisius is consistently ranked by US News & World Report as one of the best comprehensive universities in the North region. Canisius College is a private, independent Roman Catholic college. It is governed by an independent self-perpetuating Board of Trustees under a charter granted by the Board of Regents of the University of the State of New York.

As an urban college, Canisius enjoys a special relationship with the City of Buffalo. The concept of community service on which the college prides itself is best evidenced by the large number of Canisius graduates who have occupied important positions in the professional, educational, commercial and political life of the city and its surrounding communities. Buffalo’s largest private college is named after Saint Peter Canisius, a 16th century Dutch scholar. The college’s founders were guided by the same educational ideals that inspired several European universities and initiated a tradition of service to student and community.

Canisius offers academic programs taught by faculty who are leaders in their fields. More than 125 majors, minors and special programs through the College of Arts & Sciences, the Richard J. Wehle School of Business, and the School of Education and Human Services provide many exciting options for career preparation or higher-level educational pursuits. Classes are offered in state-of-the-art campus facilities and in out-of-class settings through exciting field study and internship opportunities.
