What we do
The mission of International Relations and the Brennan Center is to engage with the world and share Niagara University’s rich heritage, which is centered on the philosophical, moral, and practical implications of the dignity of the individual, as well as promotes social justice through education and services. Whether you’re coming to Niagara as an international student or are thinking about studying abroad, we’re here for you.
The philosophy of the Brennan Center is modeled after the success that Saint Justin de Jacobis, C.M., gained working in Ethiopia. He learned to understand and appreciate the culture of others before starting to teach.
In keeping with our Vincentian identity, the Edward A. Brennan Center for Language, Culture, and Leadership focuses on leading, learning, and serving in order meet the needs of international families and students. Through Niagara University, we reach out to English language learners within the community. With language as a centerpiece, the center embraces the richness of culture and language through our students, faculty, and communities and extends our mission to agencies who serve the needs of refugee, migrant, and immigrant populations.
