Organized through the Office of Student Engagement, alternative break programs engage students in experiential learning through community service and volunteerism during their fall (Thanksgiving), winter or spring break.

Join us this winter as we travel to the Monteverde Costa Rica Cloud Forest and the Louisiana Wetlands.

UB has been a local leader in tackling today’s sustainability issues and sharing our knowledge.

Every day, UB works with its partners from across the Buffalo Niagara region to positively impact sustainability efforts in our communities.

UB is committed to positively contributing to the sustainable growth of our region and community.

Giving back through volunteering is an important tenant of creating a truly sustainable campus and community.
