We all have valid and interesting comments. The problem is none of us have the financial resources that CC needs now. During the Demske/Cooke growth period which CC experienced during their administrations the College was able to raise funding from generous alumni/ae and others. As I recall , $95M during the final campaign in Father Cookes'era. That made the acquisition of the Science Hall property possible and the development of the lower and street level floors. Since then there has been no further similarly ambitious effort to raise money. Has enough time passed to do that now? If so, should the focus be on completing Science Hall into the game changing facility is was intended to be, and building an equally game changing events center? How ambitious would that need to be?

Demske & Cooke had a vision. In my opinion that underestimated what it would take to repurpose Sears. They should have done a better job of doing the math and socializing the idea with big donors. They hoped, the idea would resonate with donors. It hasn’t and as a result this is holding the school back. Hurley needs to reimagine where the school needs to go. What is our long term 2030 strategy for the institution. I know we need to manage the current situation but you also need to be looking forward and checking out what your competition is doing. Think bigger Canisius, and look to reinvent yourself vs. just survive.
