Each year, Niagara students record more than 100,000 hours of community service.
It's no surprise then that Niagara has been named to the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll every since it was established. It's proof of how important service is to the mission of the university.
In fact, you'll find a service component in almost everything you do at Niagara. Students can connect with service opportunities through:
Formally known as Learn and Serve, this mission-based program was established in 1994, and is comprised of both tutoring and human needs projects in the community. Thousands of NU students have participated since the program's inception and more than 70 classes include IMPACT activities as an intricate part of their syllabi.
Niagara University Community Action Program (NUCAP)
NUCAP organizes a wide variety of activities to aid the local community. Students invite disadvantaged youths to skating and swimming parties while others volunteer in local nursing homes and soup kitchens.
Campus Ministry’s goal is to assist all students as they grow in their own faith. Through various clubs and activities, you can meet new people, experience practical training, strengthen your academic skills and foster your intimate relationship with God.
Giving Back to Our Community
Niagara's Catholic and Vincentian heritage inspires students and faculty to serve all members of society.
What better place to start than in our own backyard? Niagara students and professors are active members of the Niagara Falls community, from the accounting students who provide tax preparation services for elderly and low-income residents to the biology students who are researching genes that are involved in regulating heart disease.
