The University at Buffalo is monitoring the COVID-19 (the disease caused by the novel coronavirus) situation carefully and is taking proactive and prudent measures to ensure the health and safety of the UB community in accordance with the guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Published March 18, 2020
The University at Buffalo is monitoring the rapidly changing environment related to novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and taking a number of steps in response. Because our alumni and friends are an important part of the UB community, we wanted to share our plans with you.
Following recent university, CDC and local health department guidelines, all in-person gatherings are cancelled or postponed until at least mid-May. While we are taking these precautions, our alumni staff is continuing to work remotely. In fact, we offer a number of virtual programs for you to take advantage of. The Webinar Wednesdays series will continue, featuring relevant speakers and topics, from personal finance to career advice. And the Career Connector Network is a great way to reach out to fellow alumni and either get or give advice. If you are in one of our Regional Networks, join your local UB alumni Facebook page and keep in contact with other alumni.
Remember, you can contact us any time with questions or for more information at 716-645-3312 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Until our normal operations resume, we hope you and your family remain well.
For most of us, life has certainly changed dramatically. Here are some ideas to help you stay productive, happy and healthy while practicing social distancing.
The good news? These tips, and so many more, can be found online. #UBuffalo Strong
