Volunteer Service Careers

Niagara University Prepares You For Service

Niagara University is nationally recognized for excellence in community service (U.S. News & World Report, The President's Higher Education Honor Roll for  Service, Templeton Foundation Honor Roll of "Character Building Institutions"), something that stems from its foundation as a Vincentian institution. All College of Arts and Sciences students participate in service as part of their courses, clubs, or other activities on campus such as Learn & Serve and BASIC service trips. Such service can be inspiring and a number of students each year ask about how to get involved in volunteer opportunities after graduation. Please feel free to explore the resources  to the right  for some of the more common programs.
