By the numbers:
The institute’s structure is made up of four pillars: Early Childhood, Community Outreach, Health & Wellness, and Housing, under which new initiatives are explored.

Just the facts:
The Levesque Institute serves as one of Niagara University’s main arms in the city of Niagara Falls and its surrounding communities. By leveraging university resources, the institute aims to initiate measurable and visible positive change in the community, with the ultimate goal being to eliminate poverty in Niagara Falls.

The institute oversees IMPACT, formerly known as Learn & Serve, which promotes student service in a more meaningful, in-depth way. IMPACT encourages students to participate in “career preparation through service,” so that the service students participate in is relevant to their future careers. Students are also asked to analyze and report measurable outcomes of their service to determine the impact that was made in the community. IMPACT also works closely with faculty to assist with implementing project-based learning in their courses.
