Father Levesque: Through the Years

The Rev. Joseph L. Levesque, C.M., announced Jan.22 that he will resign from his position as president of Niagara University at the conclusion of the current academic year. He will remain at NU, however, as the university’s Board of Trustees has voted to confer on him the title of president emeritus. In this role, Father Levesque will be empowered to continue to help Niagara in ways designated by the new president and in a manner familiar to Father Levesque, especially in the areas of institutional advancement and in relation to the Institute for Civic Engagement.

Father Levesque became the 25th president of Niagara University in January 2000. Under his leadership, Niagara University has experienced a continuous process of transformation that has significantly developed the physical character of the university’s campus and its 21st century approach to teaching and learning.
