Leadership Niagara’s offices will be housed in Timon Hall at Niagara University, thanks to an agreement signed this week by the leaders of the two entities.
The agreement between the Rev. James J. Maher, Niagara University president, and Molly Anderson, executive director of Leadership Niagara, will provide the group with rent-free space.
Leadership Niagara was started in 1984 by a group of chief executive officers, with help from the Niagara Gazette and the Gannett Foundation, to learn about issues and industries in Niagara County. Twenty-nine Niagara University employees have completed the program.
Three years ago, Niagara University started a doctorate in leadership and policy designed for working professionals interested in implementing systemic change to further organizational and community goals.
“We are two organizations that are committed to excellence. Together, we will have great synergy,” Anderson said.
