Notes from the Underground

By Patrick Healy


On Monday President Stoute wrote to the “Canisius campus community” that “I expect you know that I believe in the power of teams to accomplish things far more significant than any individual possibly could.” He didn’t expressly copy Dr. Chanderbhan and the Core Curriculum Committee on the notice, but The Underground wouldn’t be surprised to see “What is the power of teams?” on its next exam for a core-credited class.


President Stoute clearly wants to be the next FDR. The Underground isn’t talking about creating a broad coalition of constituents. No, no, no. With his use of acronyms for Senior Leadership Team (“SLT”), Canisius Leadership Council (“CLC”) and Renew, Inspire, Serve and Empower (“RISE”), he’s set to surpass the 1930s’ “alphabet soup” in no time. Truly a New Deal for Canisius.


The Underground is glad the USA enjoyed its subsidized Moe’s at last week’s meeting. We hope they spare no expense in their annual accessorizing and seemingly monthly merch purchasing.


Is Dr. Harrington getting paid based on how many Instagram posts he shares? The Underground is getting some serious thumb exercise racing through his story every day.
