University Factbook

The UB Factbook is an intensive reporting effort spanning the depth and breadth of university operations.  Its goal is to provide an interactive compendium of frequently requested official information about the institution, using definitions developed and set by UB’s data governance process.

Current subject areas include student applications, enrollment, retention, degrees and graduation rates, as well as sponsored research, employees, and tuition and fees.  Future efforts will include information on library holdings, space, budget, giving and endowments.

Information contained within the Factbook will be updated as source data become official.

Questions or comments concerning the Factbook should be directed to Craig Abbey at 716-645-2791 or .
