In the United States, hunger and obesity go hand in hand. More than 17 million US households struggle to put food on the table, and when they do, it’s often high in fat and sugar because healthy options are scarce in low-income neighborhoods.
endangered species
Using a case study approach to investigate protection of endangered species, a UB Law School faculty member has found significant gaps in how public agencies keep track of endangered species agreements. The finding by Jessica Owley, associate professor, demonstrates key concerns with monitoring and enforcement of endangered species permits.

With its Greek-style amphitheater at Baird Point, Lake LaSalle has long served as the iconic image of UB’s North Campus. Built in 1970 to provide flood control and water runoff, the 60-acre lake for years was more popular with flocks of Canada geese than with boaters and other recreational users.
UB is investing $25 million in an initiative that will harness the strengths of faculty from disciplines across the university to confront grand challenges facing humankind.
