Dear members of the Niagara University community,

As we approach the end of the fall semester, we continue to follow the developments related to the COVID-19 pandemic, including the growth of the Delta variant, as well as its potential impact to public health on campus and in the region.

Based on information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Public Health Agency of Canada, as well as data from local health officials, we know that the current rise in cases and the spread of the virus is primarily driven by those individuals who have not yet been vaccinated.  For that reason, Niagara University requires that all members of our campus community—faculty, staff, students, and year-round vendors—be fully vaccinated against the COVID virus. This decision is in the interest of public health, and it is in alignment with our Vincentian mission and our colleagues at St. John’s University and DePaul University.

The website includes a section of frequently asked questions for your review. 

If you have any questions regarding the vaccine requirement, please contact us and we will provide a response and update the FAQ portion of the website as appropriate. 

With every good wish,

James J. Maher, C.M.

New York State Department of Health

Niagara University continues to follow guidance from leading health organizations, including the New York State Department of Health.
