Orr Group’s 30th Anniversary Partner Perspectives: Rev. James Maher, President, Niagara University

In our "Partner Perspectives" series, we're joined by Reverend James J. Maher, C.M., President of Niagara University. Father Maher has served Niagara University as its 26th President since 2013. During his time, he has spearheaded the University's master plan to strengthen the physical character of its campus, develop an innovative approach to interdisciplinary teaching and learning, and address the needs of those living on the margins in Niagara Falls. Father Maher and Niagara began its partnership with Orr Group nearly 5 years ago to assess the feasibility of a $125M campaign - the largest fundraising effort ever pursued by the University. Since then, we've continued to support Niagara's advancement team in implementing the recommendations set forth in our campaign plan, serving as the University’s campaign team with an emphasis on strengthening and systematizing its planned giving program.

Hear from Father Maher on the growth and expansion of Niagara University, his extensive career in higher education, and the impact of our ongoing partnership together in the video above.
