Synopsis of Program

Communities of Excellence will be composed of groups who are committed to working towards solving the most pressing grand challenges for society while pushing the boundaries of human understanding.  Through shared infrastructure and other investments, communities will develop unique mechanisms and pursue distinct opportunities to integrate research, student learning and engagement with the ultimate goal of elevating UB’s scholarly and creative activities and learning beyond that which is currently possible.  To this end, the university invites applications for communities that will enable our faculty, students and staff to be at the forefront of learning, innovation, discovery and creative activities.
