Class Of 2019 Welcomed To NU With New Student Convocation
Niagara University professors care about their students. That was at the heart of the message delivered by Ed Hutton during Niagara University’s 13th annual New Student Convocation, held today in the Gallagher Center.
The New Student Convocation, a Niagara tradition, is considered to be a bookend to commencement, and an opportunity for new students to develop a true connection to the university. It also provides a chance for parents to share in an important transition in the lives of their sons or daughters.
Hutton, an associate professor of finance and economics and the recipient of NU’s 2014 Excellence in Teaching Award, encouraged the freshmen and new transfer students to develop relationships with faculty members. He reiterated that Niagara professors are not only experts in the subjects they teach, they are experts at teaching those subjects to students. They take their roles as instructors seriously, informed by outstanding scholarship.
We are energized, we are enthusiastic and we are passionate about being professors,” Hutton said. “And we are especially passionate about being your professors.”
