The University at Buffalo Regional Institute will hold an open house to welcome the community into its new space in downtown Buffalo from 4-6 p.m. today (Tuesday, Dec. 15, 2009) in the UB Downtown Gateway, 77 Goodell Street, Suite 302.
Remarks will be offered at 5 p.m. by Kathryn A. Foster, institute director, James A. Willis, UB executive vice president, and James A. Gardner, vice dean for academic affairs in the UB Law School.
The first unit to move into refurbished space in the UB Downtown Gateway (former M. Wile building), the institute is a major part of UB's investment in and commitment to stronger university-community connections for a more vital downtown Buffalo and region. The recently refurbished space preserves the historical character of this former factory for men's clothing while providing innovative, functional space for the institute.
