Niagara University is a Catholic university in the Vincentian tradition, located in the town of Lewiston in Niagara County, New York. Originally founded by the Congregation of the Mission in 1856 as Our Lady of Angels Seminary, the school moved from Buffalo to its current location on May 1, 1857. After 26 years on its new campus, The College and Seminary of Our Lady of Angels officially changed its name to Niagara University on August 7, 1883. The University is still run by the Vincentian Fathers. All of Niagara’s 26 presidents, including its current president, Rev. James J. Maher, C.M., have been Vincentian priests.
