Jesuit Reflects on His Job as University President

Jesuit Father Robert NiehoffShare

Jesuit Father Robert Niehoff, who has served since 2005 as president of John Carroll University, recently talked about what it’s like to be president of a university.

“There is always more to do than I can ever do. Once you get used to that fact, you begin to enjoy the rich history and tradition of Carroll. All that our students, faculty and staff do and the community we have created at Carroll is amazing to me,” said Fr. Neihoff of his work at the university, which is currently celebrating its 125th anniversary.

He says the best part of his job is celebrating student and faculty success. “It’s always great to hear a parent talk about what a great time their freshman student is having,” said Niehoff.

Niehoff also said that Jesuits cannot do anything without working with others. “That realization is more important than ever now that a small number of Jesuits currently work at John Carroll.”
