“UB’s strategic commitment to internationalization influences everything we do—from the students and faculty we recruit to the impactful research we undertake to the innovative programs and curricula we offer. Education at UB is greatly enriched by our international community of scholars and researchers, and UB’s multifaceted and transformative engagement with the world beyond our borders.”

In the classroom and in our everyday social activities, we tackle issues of global significance and celebrate cultural diversity.

Faculty come from every region in the world and host more than 600 international scholars and researchers at UB each year, partnering with institutions worldwide.


Our diversity and international engagement make us more inquisitive as scholars and more compassionate as human beings.
