MISSED UB GIVING DAY? CLICK TO MAKE A GIFT TODAY.

UB prepares students for a career and a life of curiosity, confidence and excellence. Succeeding in tomorrow’s world—planning for careers and challenges that don’t yet exist— requires unprecedented levels of adaptability, resilience, drive and determination, which the entire UB community demonstrates daily. 

When you give to the UB school of your choice, you help:  

  • 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.
