To advance UB's mission of excellence in research, teaching and service through the innovative and effective use of information technology.
Provide connectivity and access to information and technology resources that encourage student progress towards their career aspirations and guidance to remove technology barriers to completion. We facilitate how technology interacts with students in formal and informal learning environments, their living arrangements and their lifelong relationship with UB. Finally, we work to keep student use of technology safe and secure.
Effective teaching and learning requires building strong communication relationships between teacher and student. Information Technology at UB decreases the distance between instructor and student, helping to span space and time, overcome differing abilities and embraces the increasing mobility of teachers and students.
Learning environments at UB, both formal and informal, employ the latest concepts in design and implementation to enhance classroom instruction and encourage student collaboration. Technical staffs work along with faculty to safely integrate emerging technologies to ensure a robust and secure learning experience. Use of virtualized computing environments provide faculty and students with access to multiple systems directly from their personal devices anywhere, any time.
Increasing availability of Web-accessible records, applications and resources provide instructors the tools they need to monitor student progress, build portfolios that encapsulate student academic progress and provide timely feedback.
UBIT, through the Center for Computational Research (CCR),
provides UB investigators with access to state-of-the-art computing
resources to facilitate and advance their research. Access to
advanced cyber infrastructure is especially critical. The past
decade has witnessed a revolution in the application of information
technology to scientific research, fueled in part by the remarkable
advances in computer performance as well as the explosion of data
from high-throughput experimental devices.
Multidisciplinary research requires strong collaboration between investigators that span geography and time. Similarly, funding agencies increasingly require electronic submission, reporting and publishing of proposals and research outcomes. Information technology is central to maintaining these relationships as well as providing the foundations to synthesis and analytical tools.
At UB, collaboration between investigators is encouraged using video and Web conferencing tools, from simple point-to-point interactions to large-scale symposia. Robust network connections and substantial intra-campus network capabilities allow for real-time access to global scholarly and scientific resources.
Finally, the data network at UB provides access for researchers to utilize UB’s research libraries and information resources.
UBIT seeks to understand the UB community's evolving information
technology needs and provide robust IT services to meet these
UBIT reports clearly and effectively about our services. We are
committed to providing timely updates and instructions.
Working together to make progress toward UB's strategic goals,
UBIT staff members support each other through shared information
and opportunities to grow and learn.
IT at UB is a place that you can belong and thrive in a long-term career. The University at Buffalo is considered one of the best places to work in Western New York.
