Life and Learning Workshops

Whether you need help adjusting to life at UB, you want to learn new leadership skills, or you need practical advice for managing your time, a Life & Learning Workshop can help you succeed.

Additional Details


If you are unable to attend a workshop that you are registered for, please contact us. Occasionally, there is a change in a workshop time or location. In the event of such a change, every effort will be made to notify registrants. Should weather conditions cause the cancellation of classes at UB, workshops during that time will also be cancelled.


If you require reasonable accommodations for a workshop because of a disability, please contact the presenting office as far in advance as possible.

Great for Groups

You may arrange for your student group or class to attend a scheduled workshop.

If your group cannot make it to one of the scheduled sessions, many of the offices presenting these workshops will gladly provide customized workshops for university student groups. If you are interested in either option, please contact us.
