Medaille University has announced the appointment of Dr. Vochita Mihai as interim vice president for academic affairs and the appointment of Cathy A. Oddo ’82 as interim vice president for enrollment & student services. Both bring several years of experience and expertise to their roles, and both will serve as members of the President’s Senior Leadership Team and Cabinet.
On May 17, the New York State Education Department Board of Regents approved an amendment to Medaille’s charter to make the institution a university, effectively immediately. Medaille has begun to launch its transition to Medaille University, with more formal celebrations and unveilings planned for the fall, when the 2022-23 academic year begins.
In response to the current high demand for well-prepared educators, Medaille has developed education programs that make it as quick and easy as possible for prospective teachers to navigate the steps toward certification requirements in New York State or Ontario.
Medaille is excited to announce that its Board of Trustees has unanimously voted to support its transition to a university designation. Subsequently, the institution will be submitting a charter amendment request to the New York State Education Department, and upon anticipated application approval, will transition to Medaille University.
Medaille is excited to announce the completion of Phase II of its sports complex, which will greatly expand the athletic, academic and recreational opportunities available to WNY college students and community members. Completed this past December, the development has added almost seven acres to the already robust site, including new home fields for baseball, softball and field hockey.
Medaille President Dr. Kenneth M. Macur was joined by Buffalo Common Council Member Rasheed N.C. Wyatt ’89, ’19, Board of Trustees Vice Chair Michael Moley ’07 and current student Xáneya Thomas to announce the launch of the College’s American Rescue Plan Scholarship, which will help make a college education more accessible to students across New York State.
Medaille College is moving forward with the second phase of development of the Medaille Sports Complex, which will greatly increase the athletic, academic and recreational opportunities available to college students and Western New Yorkers by adding almost seven acres to the already robust site.
After experiencing much success with in-person classes and on-campus student activities during the 2020-21 academic year, Medaille College will continue to offer classes in person for undergraduate, graduate and post-traditional programs for the 2021 summer and fall semesters.
