Dr. Nancy McGlen, Professor and Dean Emeritus

“Father Levesque was the dean of the College of Arts and Sciences when I was hired. I remember going to his office in the lower level of Gallagher Center to be interviewed. Father was a great mentor to me when I became chairperson of what was then the combined department of criminal justice and political science. He ‘guided me’ in using the chain of command. When he left NU to assume roles with the Seminary and as provincial, I wrote to him each Christmas telling him I wish he would return to NU. When he did, I was thrilled. As president, Father Levesque has been even more wonderful than I expected when I asked him to come back. His love of Niagara has guided his actions every minute he has been in the position. Many of his initiatives, from a refocused commitment to service in the community to the many new buildings and programs, are symbolic of his tireless efforts to make Niagara an even better Catholic, Vincentian university.”
