KENAN GALLERY TO PRESENT 3 GENERATIONS OF BURCHFIELDS

KENAN GALLERY TO PRESENT 3 GENERATIONS OF BURCHFIELDS

This year not only marks the 50th Anniversary of the Kenan Center in Lockport, but the 51st anniversary of a landmark in the history of the Kenan House Gallery. It was on April 30, 1966, that the fledgling gallery opened with an exhibit of works by American watercolorist, Charles E. Burchfield, from the collection of Charles Rand Penney. It would prove to be one of the last exhibitions Burchfield attended in person prior to his passing in January, 1967.

CEO Magazine: Niagara University’s MBA Program Among Best In World

CEO Magazine: Niagara University’s MBA Program Among Best In World

Niagara University’s MBA programs are among the best in the world, according to rankings released yesterday by CEO Magazine.

The British-based magazine listed NU’s MBA programs in its Top Tier of North American institutions, a distinction earned by only 68 colleges and universities in the United States, Canada and Mexico.

Results were based on the quality of an institution’s in-class experience and teaching faculty, which took into account metrics such as smaller class sizes, student work experience, international diversity within the classroom, faculty-to-student ratios, accreditations, tuition cost and faculty qualifications – both academic and professional.

According to its website, CEO Magazine uses a ranking system entirely geared and weighted to fact-based criteria to cut through the noise and provide potential students with a performance benchmark for those schools under review.
