In Announcements, by , on October 28th, 2016

When the Corporation for National and Community Service named Niagara University to the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll for the 10th straight year, it also recognized NU for its commitment to improving educational outcomes for children and youth in pre-kindergarten through college.

The Honor Roll recognizes performance in four categories: Economic Opportunity, Education, General Community Service, and Interfaith Community Service.

In addition to being chosen for the General Community Service category, Niagara was one of only 14 institutions from New York state to be lauded for its innovative programs that help communities and students achieve educational goals.

“Service is at the foundation of our Catholic and Vincentian mission, which our students, faculty and staff embody as they embark upon life-changing outreach experiences in local schools and childcare centers,” said Dr. Chandra Foote, dean of Niagara University’s College of Education. “Our faculty put academic learning into action through service-learning courses, and our students harness their powerful talents and passions to help developing learners, often in low-income, urban settings.”
