President’s Advisory Council on Race

As a university community, with our mission as our guide, it is imperative that we explore, understand and respond to racism and systemic inequality.

The President’s advisory council on race is addressing these issues in order to guide and shape the University at Buffalo's policies, programs, activities and traditions.

The council’s work will inform how the UB community can harness our university’s education, research and engagement mission to combat racism and dismantle structural barriers to equality.
