Here at UB, we do more than prepare students for a career—we prepare them for a life of curiosity, confidence and excellence. Succeeding in tomorrow’s world—planning for careers and challenges that don’t yet exist—will require unprecedented levels of adaptability, resilience, drive and determination. 

No matter the school, when you give to UB, you help us: 

  • Transform our students by expanding their horizons, nurturing their capacity to collaborate and guiding them as they go forward to lead and succeed. 

 

  • Empower our faculty as they address society’s challenges—from the arts and humanities to medicine and engineering—through groundbreaking research and discovery. 

 

  • Improve our world, making life better in Buffalo and Western New York, as we share the lessons learned here with communities around the globe. 

 

The UB of tomorrow is in our hands today. Together, we take pride in our place, celebrate our way and build our bright future.
