Office of International Relations

Office of International Relations - updated March 17, 2020

The Office of International Relations continually reviews and consults numerous sources to protect the health and safety of our entire Niagara University community.  We are concerned with those traveling from other countries as well as those studying abroad.  We always abide by recommendations from the CDC, the Government of Canada and the U.S. State Department.  We always consider the objective of the study abroad trip; should that be impacted or should extenuating circumstances require, we may, and have cancelled trips.

All of our international students were healthy, and demonstrated no signs of infection when they arrived on campus to start the spring semester.

A number of Lewiston and Vaughan based faculty-led study abroad trips were completed in early January.

Due to COVID-19, all faculty-led trips have been cancelled through June 15, 2020. Some destinations have been cancelled beyond that date.

We have students from 47 countries studying at Niagara University, and also have NU colleagues from many different countries, some hailing from high impact regions.  Thank you for your care and concern for everyone who may be impacted.
