The Edward A. Brennan Center for Language, Culture and Leadership of Niagara University has newly opened to meet the needs of international students and their families. Named for the father of alumnus, Edward J. Brennan, the center will also offer intensive language education to learners of English from around the globe. The center will be an important extension of the university’s Vincentian mission to local agencies such as Catholic Charities that serve refugee, migrant and immigrant populations in Western New York.
“In keeping with our Vincentian identity, the Center for Language, Culture and Leadership will focus on leading, learning and serving,” said the Rev. James J. Maher, C.M., president of Niagara University. “The portfolio of services and programs facilitated through the center will provide a continuum of English language learning. As part of the process, we will build interdisciplinary connections between teaching and learning that will augment services to international students and their families.”
