Tuesday, January 12: John J. Hurley
John Hurley will become the 24th, and first non-Jesuit, President of Canisius College this year. He imagined Buffalo Niagara in the 21st century around five themes, with an emphasis on higher education, his primary theme. He noted higher education’s combined $3.2 billion economic impact on our region among many facts. The other themes included the importance of fresh water and a vibrant arts community, as well as the challenges of housing, government and politics.
