A Special Message from UB President, Satish Tripathi

"I have been in your shoes. I left my home country to expand my knowledge and my opportunities by traveling to Canada where I received my master's and doctorate degrees.

These credentials and experiences brought me to the United States where I have built a career, a family, a rewarding life supporting higher education. 

I assure you that the rewards of a world class education far outweigh the challenges. And as an institution, I promise that we will do everything we can to support you.

UB is an international community and a welcoming campus for students, faculty and visitors from across the globe, and is committed to remaining so.

We believe the diversity and global perspectives and experiences of our university community members—from our many students, faculty, and staff who have come to the U.S. from around the world—are among our most important institutional strengths and vital to our success as a premier public research university.

As president of UB, I promise to continue to uphold and protect these values that we hold dear."

Students like you are what make our campus community great. Our diversity and international engagement make us more inquisitive as scholars and more compassionate as human beings. Our doors remain open to everyone.

We are a border community whose neighbors, colleagues, and friends are of many different citizenships and countries of origin. This rich diversity is one of our greatest strengths and we want to add your unique perspective.
