Changing the way the world works

When Stephen Still (BS ‘76) arrived at UB, he had no idea what his future held. Along the way, he bumped into the notion that you can change the world through how vehicles move and how cities develop. 

Over four decades later, he still believes UB is one of the top transportation research universities in the world—which is why he gave $4 million to support the Stephen Still Institute for Sustainable Transportation and Logistics. Watch his story and learn more about our bold vision to shape the future of transportation.

Fueling a Transportation Revolution

Advances in artificial intelligence, machine learning and autonomous vehicles are creating a transportation revolution that we haven’t seen since the horse and buggy. Stephen’s gift—and many other gifts of all sizes—are being immediately invested in opportunities for faculty and students to address society’s biggest transportation challenges.

The interdisciplinary strength this institute brings to the table sets UB apart from other universities and enables us to bring together teams from across campus to solve real-world problems.

Gifts to the Boldly Buffalo Campaign will enable us to do bigger, bolder projects that prepare the next generation of engineers for a new world of transportation that’s igniting right before their eyes. 

Research that Registers

Jonathan Watts, vice president at Watts Architecture & Engineering, came to the University at Buffalo as a transfer student in 1996. He left his previous college because he felt that UB offered a more comprehensive engineering education, and went on to earn his BS in industrial engineering in 2000 and a BS in civil engineering in 2003.

Kennedy Colon is building a pipeline. While she’s a civil engineer, the pipeline she’s talking about is for students from disadvantaged and minority communities to get to STEM at UB – and succeed once they’re here.

Invest in the Future.

Your investment in UB will make a difference for a cause that matters to you: whether you make a gift to the UB Fund, support a scholarship for one UB student, sustain the work of a professor who will inspire thousands, or fund a cancer cure that saves the lives of millions. Every gift counts!
