This page is a repository of key resources Canisius provides to support faculty scholarship. Please reach out to Jenn Lodi-Smith, Assistant Vice President for Academic Affairs, at if you have any questions or would like to discuss any of these resources one-on-one. 



  • The Canisius Earning Excellence Program is an exciting learning and earning opportunity that pairs students with Canisius faculty for educational and rewarding experiences. These positions of excellence are intellectually demanding, create opportunities for applied learning outside the classroom, closely related to a career or scholarly field, and directly related to faculty scholarship. Working closely with faculty and on research-focused projects, students are able to achieve a high level of preparedness for maintaining professional working relationships and for continued studies at the graduate level.

  • Ignatian Scholarship Day is an opportunity for every student to submit accomplished work from the current or previous semester for exhibit, presentation or performance in a conference environment similar to that of a learned society or organization. Students will present their work through poster displays, oral papers, multimedia presentations, 2 or 3 dimensional art, and artistic performances.

  • Excellence in scholarship at the college is supported by the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP). The OSP helps Canisius faculty identify and apply for external grants. During the pre-award period, the OSP helps faculty obtain and interpret forms and guidelines, prepare budgets, and interface with institutional administration. Post-award, the OSP helps with the administration and supervision of budgets and personnel. The OSP offers a monthly grant-writing group and annual grant-writing workshops that provide a collaborative environment and financial support for the successful submission of federally funded grants.

  • The IMPACT Center for Research, Innovation, and Scholarship facilitates faculty research and faculty-student research and collaboration via several mechanisms. The Center promotes research and scholarship within the College using the diverse expertise of recognized researchers and scholars on campus. This group consults with, advises, and mentors new and established Canisius faculty in research- and scholarship-related activities. Given the range of forms of research and scholarship across the disciplines, this support is diverse and includes grant development and writing, study design and analysis (quantitative and qualitative), study and project coordination and/or data management, and intellectual property. In addition, the Center coordinates dissemination efforts through public relations and tracks research and scholarly products produced by Canisius faculty. The Center also supports faculty and student skill development through workshops and other continuing education efforts. Lastly, the Center promotes research and scholarship through institutional advancement in an effort to increase resources for scholarly endeavors.

  • Travel and conference support. Please contact your dean for school-specific ways to support your scholarly travel and/or attendance at virtual professional development programming.
  • Sabbatical leave program. The Sabbatical Leave Program exists to contribute to the academic strength of the college by providing for intellectual refreshment and professional growth of faculty. The leaves are investments for growth of a faculty member's professional development and teaching effectiveness. Sabbaticals should be mutually beneficial to the faculty member and to the college; they aid professional growth and fulfill the goals of the department and of the college. The program is open to full-time tenured faculty who have completed six or more years of full-time service. Faculty members must be under a tenure contract by the time a sabbatical is taken. Please click here for the sabbatical application.
