  • Support provided voluntarily by student governments using their student activity fees to purchase large blocks of tickets for each of the lectures for free distribution to students
  • Sponsorships directed to the series by our university and community partners

No state funds, Research Foundation funds, tuition dollars, or general gifts to the university or UB Foundation are used to support the program.
