Levesque, C.M., have been Vincentian priests.

Niagara has 3,200 undergraduate students in 50 academic programs. Approximately half of the students are residents, while the other half commutes from the surrounding area. The college is known as a liberal arts school, but offers programs in technical and pre-professional disciplines as well. The College of Education is NCATE accredited and programs are offered on the main campus and in school-based settings in the Toronto area.
