Niagara AGAIN Named To President’s Honor Roll For Community Service
Niagara University has attained the highest federal recognition colleges and universities can receive for community service, service-learning and civic engagement – again.
This marks the ninth straight year that Niagara has been named to the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll. The Catholic and Vincentian institution is the only college or university from Western New York to have made the list every year since it was launched in 2006.
The honor roll, established by the Corporation for National and Community Service, annually highlights colleges and universities that achieve meaningful, measurable outcomes in the communities they serve.
“We are most grateful for being recognized as an institution that, in the spirit of St. Vincent de Paul, engages our faculty, staff and students to serve whenever and wherever we are most needed,” said the Rev. James J. Maher, C.M., NU president. “Both on and off campus, Niagarans are utilizing their God-given talents to assist those living on the edges of society.”
In addition to being cited in the category of General Community Service, NU was also recognized in Education, which highlighted its Niagara County Early Child Care Quality Improvement Project.
