International Education

At UB, we pride ourselves on our diversity and global-mindset. For many decades, students from around the world have enriched our learning and campus culture at UB.

The past year has created significant challenges for international and domestic students hoping to pursue an international academic experience. From student emergency funds to enhancing global experiences, donor support is more critical than ever before.
