What is Service-Learning at Canisius College?

Service-Learning is a method of learning through experience, which is connected to courses for credit. Service-Learning can help students to live out the mission and vision of Canisius College.  When students are serving  in the Buffalo community and connecting it to their coursework they are being called to affect and transform the communities in which they serve in positive and meaningful ways.  Reflection on the experience is essential and looking at the critical issues which are involved with the sites where students serve is very important.

Canisius is a Catholic, Jesuit college with a special mission founded on certain cornerstones (refer to video above of Sister Pat Brady):
  • Men and women with and for others
  • Cura Personalis: care of the whole person
  • Magis: Excellence in all things, never accepting to be mediocre in your efforts
  • Promotion of social  justice by making a difference in the community and changing unjust structures
  • Finding God in all things by living out your faith and values
